When I spied these wooden mittens being sold at 3 for a pound I couldn't resist getting a handfull for Fridays Bubbly Funk Project!!
There is something about the shape of these that evokes winter days, cosy fires, snow, snowball fights.....etc. So I decided to make a Winter Banner (the autumn one is still in the design process!)It makes a nice change from the obvious Xmas (which I am going to do on the other side with some vintage papers to match my tree, that way I can keep it up for the whole three months!!)
I used only the paler patterned sides of the My Minds Eye Colorful Christmas papers from Bubbly Funk as I wanted to keep them white and pale blue after the riot of colour in the Xmas Journal!
The Bubbly Funk stack of chipboard shapes, stars and hearts came in handy as embellishments......
..and a few die cut ones from the sheet.........love these miniature mittens with all my heart. Almost too much to use them!
A little gesso, mod podge and some puff paint. More of those glittered Making Memories alphabet letters, a few embellishments from the My Minds Eye embellishment sheet and a dash of chiffon ribbon and my project was finished in a day and a bit.....I thought about adding some bobble fringing but decided not to over complicate things.......I reckon you could make your own template for these or find a similar one on the net.
I made this wee spinning card too..........to see how this card is cleverly constructed click HERE for more..........
