Let it Snow!

Here is a fun handmade snow "globe."  
I made this one for Niamh's room, so it is kinda princess-y...but, depending on which image you choose, it could be made to look very Christmas/holiday--ish:).

Here is what you need:

canning jar with lid (I used a vintage one).
strong glue.
snow, the puffy kind and the little pieces kind.
a digital stamp (I used Princess Zella).
a game piece that will hold the image...
(the kind you find lying under beds and in corners of kid's bedrooms:)
and a pretty ribbon.

Print your image out and then flip it and print it out again.  Color.

Cut both images out and glue together.  
Make sure you keep a tab at the bottom.
Put some glue on the tab and slide it into the game piece. 
(It is okay if there is some oozing glue:)...It will get covered by the snow!)

Put glue on the underside of your lid.

Place your game piece in the middle of the lid.
Surround her with some puffy snow:).

Pour a few table spoons of the sprinkle snow into the jar.

After your glue dries, turn the lid upside down and tighten the ring/cap.

Put a pretty bow around the bottom.
And place somewhere lovely for everyone to enjoy!

  34. What a cool idea Krista! Looks fab too. Bet Niamh is gonna love that for her room! Very cool! So wish I had the time to have a go for Georgie, but right in the middle of trying to exchange and complete on our house sale! So uber stressed right now. I did find a minute to load up a sweet digi of yours I coloured recently for Tiets though, swing by and take a peek if you have a minute. Big hugs, Wends x
