The Magic of Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the SVG AtticDCWV The Magic of Christmas blog hop! We are so excited to have you join us today!

At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of SVG Attic and DCWV. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will be at the top of your Christmas crafting lists!

You should be arriving from Karla’s blog, Made By Karla. If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Here is what I created for the hop:

For my first project I created a Round Traveling Case from the JGW Fabulously French Collection using 12 x 12 papers from the DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas Stack. This case will make a perfect Hostess Gift when attending those Holiday Parties. You could fill with candy, cookies, handmade holiday cards, ornaments, and so much more! 

I embossed all the straps, covered brackets with gold embossing powder and secured with gold brads.

I used square brads on the back to dress it up a bit and I think it’s just as pretty as the front. 

I adorned it with the Pine Cones, from the SVG Attic JGW Santa’s Repose, covered in Frantage tied with ribbon, a few mini ornaments and the tag is from the DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas Stack. I picked that tag specifically to gift ornaments in this travel case. 

For my second project I used the Mourner’s Hat from the JGW Raven’s Request  from SVG Attic and DCWV Merry Memories Stack to create a Carolers Hat. I love this hat because you can use it for anything! You can see a Spring Version I made here.

I used Frantage and Flower Soft to had snow and texture to the leaves. 

I also used the Jingle Bells, Sprigs of Spruce and Holly Leaves from the JGW Santa’s Repose Collection to dress this hat up. Filling in with a few snowed covered twigs and berry clusters covered in red glitter. This makes a beautiful tree topper, just be careful to keep lights away from it.  Now how about some blog hop prizes??
