Christmas Mitten Ornament

Ebrush Design Team: Lisa Somerville Week 6 Cycle 1

I love this sweet Mitten! How clever and what a cool use of our Sponsor's product Evolon "plastic" paper! Lisa shows us another great way to use it with our eBrushes!

Hi, and welcome to the Craftwell Blog, Lisa here today, sharing Christmas Mitten Ornament/Gift Card Holder the eBrush.  This month, we are sponsored by Atlantic Paper and I've used their fabulous Evolon Paper to create my mitten. I love this paper, and it cut wonderfully using my electronic die cutting machine.

eBrush with Spectrum Noir and Sharpie Adapter
Evolon Paper
Stencil - Winter Wonderland TCW168
Foam Brush - optional
DecoArt Decou-Page - optional
Crafter's Companion - Spectrum Noir Pastels (PP2)
Sharpie Metallic Silver Marker
Zva Creative Crystal Gems
White Seam Binding
Glue Dots
Fusible Web (optional)
Tulle (optional)

Die Cutting Machine
Zva Creative Crystal Gems
Non Stick Craft Mat
Seam Binding

Using your die cutting machine, die cut the Mitten, Cuff and Snowflake from the Evolon Paper.  You may wish to add Fusible Webbing to the Evolon Paper from which you are cutting the Cuff and Snowflake, that way you can easily attach them to the mitten.  If you don't have webbing on hand, no worries, you can attach the embellishments with Decou-Page.

When using the Evolon Paper, be sure to work on a covered surface, as your mediums may bleed through.

Using the eBrush, Sharpie Adapter and Metallic Silver Sharpie, add color to the "cuff" and snowflake that was cut from Evolon Paper and also to the Zva Creative Crystal Gems.

Using the eBrush with the Spectrum Noir Adapter and Spectrum Noir PP2 Marker, spray over Evolon Paper using the Winter Wonderland Stencil.  Move stencil and repeat until paper is covered. 

Repeat steps on other mitten.  You may want to do both sides of the mitten for a more finished look.

Using needle and Silver Cording, add stitches as shown.

Add cuff and snowflake to mitten as shown.  You can use Decou-Page to adhere these cut pieces. OR as I mentioned above, before die cutting the pieces, add fusible webbing to the Evolon Paper, then iron the cuff and snowflake to ensure that they will not fall off.  

Blanket stitch the edges using Silver Cording to adhere the two mittens together and embellish as desired.

Thanks for stopping by the Craftwell Blog, I hope you have found inspiration in my post!
