{got mittens?}

I altered these Maya Road mittens this morning - they will get wrapped onto my nieces, Sara & Emilie's, gifts today!

I first painted the back of each mitten a bright red.
Next I covered each mitten with Girl's Paperie pp. I sanded the edges and then machine stitched right on top of the pp. Stitching chipboard is sort of like mending the hub's denim overalls. It's the same thickness - you just gotta trudge on through. :) For the top of each mitten, I accordian pleated some bazzill and glued all the way around.
I made the chip stickers pieces by layering the heidi grace stickers on top of cs, and then on top of a punched out scalloped pp circle. Added some zig zag stitching and then for some fun sparkle, I heat embossed the whole piece. I really like how it shines! The date stickers are by sassafras & velvet flowers are Maya Road. These mitten ornaments have enough Fabri Tac glue on them to last for a hundred years!! LOL!

For a beautiful holiday scrapbooking kit, look here. Cindy, at Citrus Tree Studios has put together a couple of kits for December. The kit I used is called "Christmas Potpourri", and it's such a lovely kit!! I am so glad I ordered it!!!

I have so many things I need to do today!! I hope I get half of them done!
With list in hand, I will breathe deep and get started.
Happy Day before Christmas Eve!!!
love & hugs,
