Snow globe- May Arts and Scrapbook Adhesives

Hi and welcome to my project for the hop. I decided that it was time to try a snow globe from a mason jar. It was really very easy.  For the tree on the inside I cut a bunch of triangles from patterned paper and folded them in half and then glued them all together and wrapped them with the May Arts pearl wire.  You can't see it in the picture but on the ground under the tree I have some beautiful soft lace that makes it look like snow.  After the inside is all put together put in some glitters and micha flakes then it is time to decorate the outside of the jar.  This always involves more ribbon :)  When all done shake and watch the snow fall.  My kids love this and I see a few more being made this holiday season.

May Arts Ribbons Used:
FY-09 wired Pearls
377-38-30 gold velvet
390-1-01 Lace
SM09 Jute String

Glass Jar

  11. An original take on the snow globe- it also is taking advantage of the mason jars that are so popular these days-- great combination.
