Snowflake Mittens

Hi!  Just wanted to share a couple of more mitten ornaments/tags that I made for Cheryl's kids.  Mitten dies are from Spellbinders and the snowflakes from MFT's Die-namics dies.  The snowflake dies are so delicate but I really love how detailed they are, especially the smallest one.  I really had to take care not to pull too hard on the smallest one since it was felt and if I tugged too hard, it would break.

Here's close up of the smallest snowflake.  I tried not to make this one too girly.

This is the reverse side.  I just die cut their initials in felt also.  I love the lace too.

The finished product/packaging. 

My 3 kids also decorated their own mittens since they were on vacation.  The boys even wrote down their Xmas list on a piece of paper and stuck it in their mittens.  My daughter never knows what she wants.  She's always been that way.  She never asks us to buy her anything, not even toys when she was younger.  So different from the boys who ask for something whenever we're out shopping!

We've already undecorated our tree.  After I came home from my after-Xmas shopping, I found that my daughter and hubby had removed most of the ornaments already!  I thought that was so fast and thought we could've left the tree up until New Year's.  Oh well.

Thanks for reading!

Thanks, the mittens were so cute, I was telling my son that, and all he said was, hey there's candy canes in here! I like the matching mini mitten tag and the snowflakes, so cute! And the felt feels really nice. Our tree is gone too, and yup, guess who wanted to take it down...my husband too! But ours was really dry. And I don't know when the tree recycle at the park ends, but he wanted to drive it over there and dump it over the weekend. He said there were already like 10 trees there. I didn't even get a chance to put up my new post-Xmas ornaments! I only opened them to check them before I wait until next Xmas and find out they're broken or something.
