Very Merry Ornaments with Authentique and Petaloo

Our friends at Petaloo International have joined up with us for a week of fun, inspiration, and prizes on the Authentique blog. All week long, the designers have been showcasing seasonal project ideas featuring Authentique papers and Petaloo notions and trim.


For my project, I made these festive paper ornaments using one of my all-time favorite dies from Papertrey Ink, the mitten.

Each ornament is made up of two paper mittens, stitched together around the outside, and dressed up with lots of pretty trims, berries and leaves. I left the tops of the mittens open, turning these little cuties into pocket ornaments, perfect for filling with small trinkets or sweets.


The pretty papers are from Authentique’s holiday collection, Believe, with the addition of a small bit of Faith paper used on the small round tags. The beautiful wide lace is Petaloo, as are the holly berry and twine clusters. I added some shabby hand-dyed crinkle ribbon and a pair of stitched paper leaves, too.

The finished ornaments look great hanging on the tree or tied onto holiday packages, and can be filled with small treats for an instant holiday gift idea. I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Authentique blog, if you’d like to learn more. And be sure to leave a comment while you are there for your chance to win an Authentique prize package.

Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

  1. Beautiful as can be are those sweet mitten ornaments, Audrey! Love the papers, lace, and sweet details! Take care and have a great weekend, hugs!

  2. They must have made that mitten die with you in mind because it is so perfect for one of your fun stitchy projects. I could see these as cute place cards too. Adorable and clever as always. Hugs!

  3. How cute are these!!! Oooh Audrey! I love that they are little pockets too – multi function! The stitched leaves are adorable – just adding the stitching to them, really makes them look more dimensional. My fave is the tartan one!!! Always drawn to and love a good Chrissy tartan!
