Hello my crafty friends! We just got our first significant snow this weekend. Not enough to build a snowman, so I did the next best thing without having to bundle up and go out into the cold. I built my own snowman snow globe ornament and… it lights up!
Let’s take a look at the tutorial.
D – I die cut two solid circle from white glitter cardstock. One to use as the front and the other to use the back of the ornament.
E – I die cut 2 snow globe base pieces from a printed cardstock
F – I die cut the snowflakes out of one of the glitter circles. I used the third largest circle to die cut a circle of blue vellum.
G – I added a layer of double-sided adhesive foam tape to a piece of white cardstock (enough to cover an 8″ x 4″ area). I lined up the second and third largest circles to create a ring and taped the dies to hold them in place with washi tape.
H – I die cut two foam tape rings.
I – I cut off a two inch opening from one of the adhesive rings and attached it to the snowflake circle. I glued the vellum circle to the inside middle of the snowflake circle.
J – I cut off a two inch opening from the second adhesive ring and attached it to the back of the solid white glitter stock. I cut another circle (using the third largest die) from a piece of holographic cardstock and glued it to the inside of the solid snow globe.
The die cuts in the photo above shown in different colors so you are able to see how the the ornament is assembled.
1 – I cut a 1″ x 2 3/4″ piece of cardstock and scored it at 3/8″ and 5/8″.
2 & 3 – I cut two 1/4″ strips of cardstock. I attached the bottom of the snow globe base to one edge of the scored strip.
4 – I attached one strip of cardstock to each side of the folded snow globe base and then glued the base to the snow globe.
Here is the layout on how to attach the Halo Lights
. The button an battery base of the Halo Lights
is placed at the snow globe base and the Halo Lights
are positioned in the round snow globe. A double layer of adhesive foam strips frame out the snow globe base and the Halo Lights
On the front, glue the snowman die cut to the front of the snow globe. Die cut the additional snowman pieces and glue them to complete the snowman.
Make a loop from ribbon and glue it to the top inside of the snow globe for a hanger. Glue the two snow globe sides together. Locate the Halo Lights
push button and write the word push over the location. Next shape and glue the two side strips around the snow globe.
On the reverse side of the snow globe glue the tree die cut and the sentiment “let it snow”.
