DCWV/Eileen Hull Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!   This Month DCWV & Eileen Hull Designs are bringing you a month filled with inspiration in our Winter Wonderland Blog Hop!  Every Friday, the DCWV blog will have projects for you and Eileen Hull's DT also does on Tuesdays.
Here is what I created to inspire you this packaging ideas!
First up, this awesome gift bag!  I started with the gorgeous papers in DCWV's Cranberry Christmas stack (available at Michael's).  I used a gift bag svg from SVG Attic to create it.  
For the handles, I used the Holiday Lights Christmas twine from Blue Moon Beads (3 strands of 5.5ft) and Eileen Hull's Twist and Style tool.  Here is the online store it’s sold in, and here is a video tutorial on how to use the Twist and Style.  It is a great tool to give wire or twine a whole different look for your projects!
The Merry Christmas banner and the bow embellishments are from DCWV's DIY Project Stack: Gift Decor.  The snowflake charm is from Blue Moon Beads.
Next, I have this sweet little treat bag.  I used the DIY Project Stack: Gift Decor for it.  Look at all that gorgeous metallic paper!  Ooo La La!  That stack is all pre die cut, so it makes projects like this SO simple!  Once again, I used the Twist and Style and 2, 4ft strands of twine to create the tie for this bag.
This hexagon box and tags are from the DIY Project Stack: Gift Decor.  I used one 5.5ft strand of Blue Moon Beads twine with the Twist and Style for the tie.  That cute snowman charm is also from Blue Moon Beads.
Last, I have this gift card tag.  It is also from the DIY Project Stack: Gift Decor (Can you tell I LOVE that stack?!) For the tie at the top, I only used one strand of the Blue Moon Beads twine (4 ft. long) with the Twist and Style tool.
Make sure to stop by the DCWV blog today to see what the rest of the team has to inspire you!
