Impression Obsession Fall/Winter Dies - Day 1

Welcome to the Impression Obsession Team Fall/Winter Die hop! We have some beautiful new dies to share with you, and prizes too. Keep reading to find out how you could win a $25 gift certificate and get a few dies of your own!

We're sharing Christmas dies today - I decided to use this mitten die to make a cute and useful clip! I cut a white mitten first, then traced it to create a backing piece in red. 





Mitten
Patchwork Holly
I cut 2 chipboard mittens - with a single pass, the outline cut but not the design, so those were perfect for backing. 



I used a full size clothespin, and attached it with hot glue. The ribbon is laced through the cuff of the mitten - so fun!

  56. How sweet! I thought this was a card, but you went one step further and made it a clip. The mitten pattern is so cute and now the recipient will be able to keep the clip to use over the winter and future winters, whereas a card may have been (unintentionally, of course) disposed. Thanks for sharing your great idea.
