How to

Photocopy some small items onto paper.

  • Small winter items such as scarves and mittens can be photocopied on the printer in the same way as textual material.
    Make reduced copies of mittens to print them out slightly smaller than actual size. Assigning multiple pages to be printed on a single page or using the layout feature is useful for this step.
  • The items you printed can be used in a variety of ways, such as cutting the printed scarves and stoles into the shapes of your choice and cutting along the outline of the mittens.
  • Approval of the copyright holder is required for use of copyrighted work for anything other than personal (within the range of at-home use, etc.) use.

Warm, Welcoming Luncheon Mat

Turn a paper napkin into a pocket square and a mitten into a welcome card. Because these luncheon mats are handmade, they are truly unique.

  1. Make the luncheon mat.
    Take two A4 sheets of paper with a stole printed on them and glue them together so that they overlap by about 1 cm.
  2. Make the pocket.
    Cut some paper with a scarf printed on it into the shape of a pocket, and then attach it to the mat. Put a line of glue about 1 cm wide on the right and left edges and attach it slightly bulging so that the paper napkin can be placed inside.
  3. Make the message card.
    Print out the mitten at an appropriate size for the plate, cut it out, and write your message.

Simple Glove Wrapping

A simple decoration made by adding a printed paper glove to a bag and clipping it closed. Add a touch of life by positioning the glove's fingers or having it hold a greeting card.

  1. Put some glue on the shaded area of the card as shown.
  2. Attach the cut out paper glove.
  3. Put your present into the bag, fold over the mouth of the bag, put on the glove holding the card, and clip the bag closed.

Dress Up a Handle Bag With a Scarf

A perfect decoration for winter that looks as though it were bundled up in a real scarf. Gorgeously transform a solid-colored paper bag!

  1. Cut some paper with a scarf printed on it into strips and then connect the strips together using some glue.
  2. Aim for a length that will wrap around the bag once, plus 20 cm.
  3. Put some glue along the top edge, fold it over and glue it down to make a slight ring, then make cuts to create some narrow strips that will become the fringe.
  1. Glue it down so that it covers the opposite end, and fold and bend the fringe strips randomly to add a sense of movement.

Miniature Mitten Box Wrapping

A simple embellishment that can be made with some yarn with miniature mittens attached. The cuteness of the miniature mittens really stands out.

  1. Tie up the present with some yarn.
  1. Attach the miniature mittens to the ends of the yarn.
  2. Cut some scrap paper into small pieces and glue it down over the ends of the yarn to firmly attach the mittens.
