This week, we are excited to be partnering with our friends at Petaloo to bring you a week of fun and inspiring projects featuring Authentique paper and Petaloo notions and trim. Today we have a holiday project and tutorial to share with you, made with our holiday collection, Believe.


Very Merry Mitten Ornaments by Designer Audrey Pettit:

Supplies:
Authentique Believe Collection:
"innocence" 12x12 paper, "tidings" 12x12 paper,

"homeward" 12x12 paper, "adorn" 12x12 paper, "universal" 12x12 paper
Authentique Faith Collection:


6x6 Bundle
Petaloo: Crochet Lace Trims- Cream, Faux Dried Berry Clusters- Red/Green/Burgundy
Dies: Papertrey Ink (mitten, tiny tags)
Stamp: Papertrey Ink (tiny tags)
Template: Kiwi Lane Designs ( Tiny Holiday Accessory)
Ink: Ranger Ink
Trim: Stampin'Up
Floral Wire





 Tutorial:




To begin, die cut mitten shapes from a variety of Believe 12x12 papers using a mitten die. You will need two shapes (one front, and one reverse) for each completed ornament. If you don't have a mitten die, you can create your own hand-drawn pattern, or download a template for free from the internet.



Edge each mitten shape with brown ink, then adhere a front and back shape together using only a small amount of adhesive in the rounded bottom of the mittens. Machine stitch around the shapes, leaving the top open. If you don't wish to sew, simply apply adhesive to the outline of the mittens, leaving the top open. This creates a fun little pocket that can be filled with trinkets or candy later.




Adhere the widest lace trim around the top cuff of the mittens, trimming off the excess on the side.




Trace holly leaf shapes onto green Believe patterned papers using Kiwi Lane Design's Tiny Holiday Accessory templates, and cut out. You will need two leaves for each finished mitten.


Punch small holes in either side of the top of the ornament, and thread with florist wire to create the ornament hanger. Ink the holly leaves with brown ink, and machine stitch down the center, if desired. Fold lightly upward along the stitch lines, and adhere the leaves to the top left side of the ornaments.


Adhere dyed seam binding trim and Petaloo Faux Dried Berry Blusters to the center of the holly leaves.
Die cut small round tag shapes from Faith 6x6 Bundle paper, and stamp with holiday sentiment. Tie tags with string, and adhere to the center of the berry clusters.


Finished ornaments look great hanging on the tree or tied onto holiday packages, and can be filled with small treats for an instant holiday gift idea.


 Enjoy!
