Hi crafty friends! Happy Holiday Season to you all! Wanda here today to share a project made with the brand new Candy Cane Lane Collection! It's so holly jolly and cute and fun! Everything you could want in a winter paper collection... I was smiling the entire time I was making this project to share with you. I am always looking for cute handmade gift items to give out to friends, neighbors, and coworkers this time of year. I decided to make some paper mitten ornaments that hold a coffee gift card tucked inside. After the recipient takes out the gift card, they can hang the ornament on their tree! I will put the date and name on the back of each one too.

I started by using the gorgeous 12x12 papers from the Candy Cane Lane collection. I die cut out two mittens in each color and then glued them together back to back. I die cut two cuffs and did the same, being careful not to glue the top shut. I used the Gingham 6x6 paper pad to make the cuffs. I tucked a little bit of tissue down inside the mitten to make it puff out just a little. 

I used silver brads on the cuffs and put some Chunky Twine through the brads to act as the ornament hanger part. Then the really fun part - decorating the mittens with stickers and ephemera! I tucked a bit of tissue, the coffee cards, and a small candy cane into the top opening. Super festive. I can't wait to give them away! I used an old mitten die that I've had for years. You could easily use a template from online, or an SVG file of a mitten. I thought this idea would also be cute with coffee mugs instead of mittens. I might try that!

Here are my three mittens...


 I used lots of stickers (Icons) and gems and all the good things from the Candy Cane Lane Collection. If you look closely, can you see those super cool clear acetate snowflakes? Love them!




I adore this happy jolly snowman! He's holding his Christmas tree, and I added lots of rhinestone ornaments to it! I do love the sparkle!








I hope I've given you some good ideas for your Christmas crafting today! December is going to go by fast and I'm hurrying around trying to get everything done. I wish you a joyous holiday season! I will see you soon with another project. Until then, happy crafting!
