Imaginisce Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to our little Imaginisce 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop to warm you up on a cold day! What about a little Cottage Christmas Mitten Wreath to turn the cold into a cozy craft day? This wreath was created with a Maya Road Chipboard Album and the Imaginisce Cottage Christmas collection.
Close Ups of the mittens and cuffs. I used some clear stickers from Little Yellow Bicycle's Christmas Delight collection to add the sentiment and some fuzzy yarn to add some detail to the cuffs.
Make sure you have all of your supplies: chipboard mitten album, super cute Cottage Christmas 6 x 6 patterned papers, 12 inch cake plate, etc..
Trace the album on the back of the 6 x 6 papers, cut out the shape and ink the edges. Then assemble the parts with a good adhesive.
Use some of the Imaginisce Apple Cider paper to make the little "wood" brads for the mittens with the Imaginisce i-top. The 16 mm punch and brad daddies were the perfect size for this project.
Add some furry details to the mittens with some fun yarn, This was a bit of a challenge, but my favorite part of the whole project. I used some of Tombow's multi Aqua glue and just adore the look.

If you have not been to Cari Locken's blog yet, hop on over there and then hop back to the Imaginisce blog to solve our challenge about what our theme was for this hop.
