Hello everyone! It's Kerstin today on the Pinkfresh Studio Scrapbook Blog and I want to share with you a wonderful project for Christmas!
I love snow globes and when I got our Christmas decorations out of the attic and my snow globes came back into my hands, I thought it would be awesome to have a mini album as a snow globe. I tried around a bit and out came THIS!
I have also thought about using my snow globe as an advent calendar. Hmmm - I still have some time to decide! I have created with the magical "Happy Holidays" collection.
Let's get started!
For the semicircle, I made a pattern and cut 4 pieces out from white cardstock. The semicircle has a width of 8 inches and a height of 5 inches. I cut out another semicircle inside. For the circle I left a border of 3/8 inch and 1 inch at the bottom.
I glued the semicircle with one of the amazing "Happy Holidays" 12 x 12 paper pack. Likewise, I covered the lower part of the semicircle with paper.
To create the snow globe effect I cut out acetate in a half circle, sprinkled it with white paint, cut it in half and glued it to the back of the half circle. To capture my memories, I folded a "witch's staircase" from white cardstock and glued it in place.
Here you can see how it looks when everything is glued together. To be able to close my snow globe, I added a ribbon.
Using the various embellishments from the "Happy Holidays" collection such as Ephemera Pack, Cardstock Stickers, Tag Ephemera, Chipboard Frames, Wood Accents and Puffy Stickers, I prepared small cards in which I can add my photos and journaling.
I also wanted something to store my snow globe mini in. The result is a small box in which I can keep the mini.
So the snow globe mini is well stowed!
The mini can be used for December memories as well as an Advent calendar. I hope you like this idea and I can inspire you to get creative with the beautiful "Happy Holidays" collection!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful Christmas Time and see you next time! Merry Christmas!
