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.

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.

Mitten

  • 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.
