Draw around the mitten template onto a 13 x 15cm base, positioning the template slightly over the top edge.
Carefully cut out the mitten to create the shaped base card. Cover the front panel of the mitten with red stitched-effect star paper and cut off the excess.
Create the mitten’s cuff by cutting it from green gingham paper and then attaching it to the mitten. Stick a length of ribbon across the paper joins.
Cut red and green stars from patterned paper and glue them together. Attach a large pearl to the centre and add it to the mitten with foam pads.
Add a felt holly embellishment to the ribbon band. Stamp, or handwrite, a Christmas sentiment onto white card, then trim and mount it onto red card. Attach the sentiment so it runs across the mitten’s cuff to finish.
