BBTB2 Mittens Challenge

This week's BBTB2 challenge was to use the mittens from Joys of the Seasons. This cut made me think of mittens I had when I was a kid, with the little string that connected them so I wouldn't lose them.  I made the mittens into pockets by running a line of glue along the edges of the mittens and adhering the shadow layer of blue cardstock together. That forms a pocket where a gift card, candy, or other small gift can be placed. I added shredded paper as filler sticking out of the top. I embellished them with blue snowflake patterned paper, cupcake paper flowers with pearl brads, snow ball wired ribbon around the cuffs, and blue rhinestone flowers. I attached the two mitten pockets with wired ribbon. Check out the other adorable designs at BBTB2!

Miles of Smiles,
