Looking for a fun but easy (and economical) holiday gift to put together? Make a snow globe!
Start by cutting a circle from vellum with the Circles steel dies. I'm using the largest circle in the set. You will also want to cut a couple houses with the Happy Home steel dies.
Now you are going to need a two-part plastic ornament. I found standard size ones, which you can often find at big box craft stores, work well for this project.
Open the ornament. Add some sequins (or beads) to one half. It's up to you how much to put in.
Now add a pinch of batting to the other side of the ornament.
Cut a 7" x 1" piece of cardstock. You can use it plain or stamp a pattern on it. (I stamped the polka dots with the Lots of Dots stamp set.) Roll the piece of cardstock into a circle. Connect the ends with a staple.
I think one of the coolest things about these snow globes is you can use them a home decor or you can use them on a Christmas tree as an ornament. If you want to use it as an ornament, flip the ornament over as you assemble it together so the hole is at the top. Use a clear glue to seal the ornament. Use the same glue to connect the cardstock snow globe base to the bottom of the ornament. Add a little twine or ribbon to the top of the ornament and it will be good to go.
