These mittens won't warm chilled hands, but they will generate good cheer when clipped to gift tags.
Martha Stewart Living, December/January 1998/1999
Cut a mitten shape from cardboard, and trace it onto a piece of felt.
Cut along the lines, and glue the felt to the cardboard with clear-drying white craft glue. Adorn the felt side of the mitten with bits of felt in complementary colors -- dots made with a hole punch, a monogram, felt trim edged with decorative shears, or a Christmas tree cut out with a decorative craft punch.
Glue a standard wooden clothespin to cardboard, then glue a magnet to the back of the clothespin.
After the gifts have been opened, use your mittens to display greeting cards on the refrigerator.
