You have created such a sweet and timeless gift. The papers and embellishments are beautiful.

For my Christmas inspiration, I created a money mitten! The perfect way to gift money to that special someone! Stamped images are from JustRite Stampers Charming Christmas Set. Using the coordinating custom Spellbinders Charm Dies is such a bonus and so much fun to create with!

I started by cutting two mittens with my largest (#5) Spellbinders Mitten Die. After dry embossing with my Cuttlebug snowflakes folder, I stack the two mittens atop each other and used my punch tool to create holes around the mitten's edge. Using sparkle white metallic string I sewed a blanket stitch to secure the two mittens together.
Close up view of the stamped image and a better look at the blanket stitching in the lower left corner of picture. And look at the Webster's gorgeous trim! Sheer ribbon, trims, string and adhesive pearls are found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store!

I never think of a mitten as "elegant", until NOW!!! Beautiful and clever idea -- who wouldn't love a mitten stuffed with cash?!!!

What a beautiful mitten you've created! I love the soft colors, and it looks so soft! I would wear it and feel very special in it!
