Snow Globe with Avocado Arts

Snow Globe

I am super excited to share this Avocado Arts snow globe with you today! I used the November kit, Bring on the Holiday Cheer! This snow globe is very easy to create and I think would be SUCH a fun project to make with your children over the holidays.

Snow Globe CU inside

I started off by stamping the tree image several times onto green cardstock. I over-stamped the trees with the tinsel-looking image, also in green ink. The tree images were cut out and scored in half. Gluing each tree side back–to-back, I was able to make a dimensional tree. The tree was glued to the base of the snow globe.

Then I stamped the cardinal, banner, and peace sentiment. They look so cute all nestled inside the tree, don’t they? :)

Snow Globe CU outside stamping

Using ink formulated for shiny surfaces, I stamped the small snowflake from Ho Ho’s and Holiday Blessings. To make it easier, I put one hand inside the globe and stabilized it while I stamped with the other. This needed some lengthy drying time.

Snow Globe CU glitter

Once everything was dry, I poured some of this cello glitter into the edge of the globe. Then I pushed the base inside and screwed the bottom into place. The snow globe is from Michael’s. It contains directions on how to turn it into a real, liquid-filled globe. If you are going to buy one and do that, be sure and pop out the directions because there is a great supply list included.

Be sure and stop by the rest of the team to be inspired!
