Gift card/money Holder.....

I like to make little holders or wallets for giving gift card or money at Christmas. This year I have mostly made stockings but for my Daughters I decided to try and make mittens instead. I spent all morning making just one of these as I had to make a template first. I found a mitten shape on the internet and printed it off, I then made the mitten cuff longer so that I could score and fold it to produce a lift up flap. Inside is a pocket for the card/money to fit into. I forgot to take photos of the inside but will try and add one tomorrow. 

I used some scraps of MME Lost and Found Christmas papers to cover the mitten and then decorated with a stamp from Waltzingmouse Around Christmas time set. I finished of with some Jumbo ric rac, a poinsettia flower and a loop of moss green seam binding. 

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out it looks really sweet hanging on the Christmas tree.

I'm entering this into the following challenges;

Charisma cardz - No Cards
Moving Along With the Times - Last minute Christmas
Crafty Boots challenge - Anything Goes
