Mittens and Snowflakes

Nov 6, 2009

I love the cuff on these mittens. They remind me of when I was around 3 or 4 years old living in Kittery, Maine. One winter I remember sitting in the back seat of my Mom and Dad’s blue Volkswagen Beetle with my hands all toasty and warm inside my brand new muff. I loved that muff and thought I was something else using it. I think it’s funny how a little piece of craft Boa can remind me of something long ago.

Snowflakes and Mittens Banner

Instructions:

  • Cover the front and back of three pages from a Maya Road Mitten Chipboard Coaster Book with vintage wallpaper. I used Aleene’s Paper Glaze adhesive when attaching the wallpaper.
  • Sand the edges of each mitten using a sanding block or Emory board. Apply a clear drying liquid adhesive around the outer edge of a mitten and apply Silver German Glass Glitter, let dry. Repeat this process for each mitten.
  • Accent the wallpapers design using Diamond Stickles, let dry.

  • Cover the front and back of four pages from a Maya Road Snowflake Chipboard Coaster Book with vintage sheet music.
  • Sand the edges of each snowflake using an Emory board. Accent the edges of the snowflake using Platinum Stickles, let dry.
  • Paint a chipboard Maya Road Snowflake using Adirondack Metallics Paint Dabber in Silver, apply a clear drying adhesive to the top of the snowflake and apply Silver German Glass Glitter, let dry.
  • Attach the glittered snowflake to the center of the large snowflake coaster using a pop dot.
  • Create a small crepe paper rosette, accent the edges of the rosette using Platinum Stickles then attach a small rhinestone to the center using a strong liquid adhesive, let dry.
  • Attach the crepe paper rosette to the center of the glittered snowflake.
  • Using a crop-a-dile punch a hole at the bottom of the large snowflake, place a jump ring onto a Maya Road Hanging Chandelier Trinket Bead and attach to the large snowflake, repeat on this step on the remaining snowflakes.
  • Thread the snowflakes and mittens using Brown & White Baker’s Twine and White Seam Binding.

    I LOVE this! Those mittens are so stinkin’ cute!! The snowflakes are mighty cute too. I found some awesome Christmas music fabric at Hobby Lobby recently. That would make for some lovely texture. I could maybe pick some up for you if you like.
