Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Hello!  Today I am super excited to participate in a month long Winter Wonderland Blog Hop with the DCWV and Eileen Hull design teams.   I worked with the most gorgeous papers from the new DCWV Cranberry Christmas Stack available at Michaels. This stack is so pretty with all of the foil papers it contains.  I purchased these fun mason jars and altered them for a fun gift idea.
I wrapped the holiday papers around the center of the mason jar and adhered the back closed. Several die cut snowflakes were attached to the front as a decorative element.  Using Eileen Hull's Twist & Style Tool I took some cotton cording from Blue Moon Beads and twisted it creating a decorative trim for the top of my mason jar.  I wove in a couple of jingle bells and added a few die cut branches.
The tags are also from the same stack, I trimmed them with some scissors into a gift tag shape, punched a hole and added some more twisted cording to each of the tags.  A die cut snowflake was added to the corner of each tag.
Don't forget to check out the amazing projects by all of the designers and leave a comment for a chance to win this gorgeous stack!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!
