Mitten Gift Card Holder

a-mitten-full-of-cheer-w-30I saw a lovely mitten garland in Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine, and I had the idea to make a mitten gift card holder.

I drew my own template.    It is approximately 41/4″  at the widest point x 5 1/2″ from top to bottom.

EDITED TO ADD TEMPLATE LINK

The gift card is tucked into the palm of the mitten (front panel)

I used SCS‘s tuesday color challenge for my color choices, so the base mitten is basic gray, as is the ribbon. The snowflakes are baja breeze cs, and the scallop trim is kiwi kiss cardstock by Stampin’ UP!

Here’s How:

I cut out 1 base mitten, and 1 top panel cut  to the bottom of the cuff of the mitten.

I glued the top panel to the bottom but just around the edges and bottom so that there is room for the gift card to slip inside.

Then, I cut one more mitten outline up to the cuff in decorative paper and covered the top panel.

I embellished it with kiwi kiss scalloped trim, some punched snowflakes with added bling,  and tied a ribbon at the top, and it’ was done.

Wouldn’t these be cute hanging on the Christmas tree with candy canes tucked into them?  Or all in a row hanging  from a garland for a decoration?  I am hoping I have time to make a bunch in different colors to do just that!

Hope you are having a wonderful day!!
