Gypsy Laser Cuts Guest Post

              Hi folks...the count down continues to Christmas!!!  Today I am up at the Gypsy Laser Cuts blog again.  So excited to be joining in with GLC girls!  Today I have an old fashion mitten ornament to share.  I used the Mitten mini album.
               Here is a quick little tutorial for you!  I started by tracing my mitten onto pattern paper.  I used some gorgeous plaid paper from Authentique.  I love the homespun quality...perfect for my mitten. 

 Than cutting it out and adhering it onto the chipboard mitten.  I sanded and distressed the edges a bit.

Gather up the GLC goodies you want to use to add personality.  I decided to use a fun Victorian image to pair with the Windows 4 panel set.   I also used the snowflake shape set.  I inked my chipboard pieces with a bit of white ink and aged them lightly.  I wanted to keep the kraft color but add a bit of white for a Winter appearance. 

 I made some handmade paper fringe using some vintage crepe paper.  I inked the edges for an aged look.  I wound some twine through the edge so the mitten can be hanged or tied to a package this holiday. 

 I started adding some goodies to the top of my  mitten...adding seam binding, pinecone, berries, and greenery. 

 Next I layered my Victorian family onto my snowflakes

 Last but not least I added a sentiment using the Words and phrases set.  I added some faux snow and some rhinestones and was done!

Here it is done!  All ready to hang on a tree or tie to a pretty package. 

Thanks for visiting me today!  hugs, Cherry

This is gorgeous - your mitten looks like it would take forever to create but after reading your directions step by step, it sounds pretty easy! I love Christmas plaids!
