Hi everyone! Today I want to share a musical snow globe that I have altered for the Canvas Corp blog. I found the globe sitting in my husband’s study window, all the water evaporated and the base and the “winter scene” bleached from the sun. I thought this would be fun to give the globe new life by altering and creating a Spring scene inside. For the complete blog post you can find more photos and the how to’s HERE.
Hi everyone! Are you ready for Christmas??? Me? I am almost there…I still have some shopping to do, wrapping presents and crafting also…not enough hours in the day for everything!
I want to share a snow globe I created from a wine glass and paper tart pan. For more photos and the how to’s you can find the blog post HERE.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a very quick post with my Eileen Hull’s Art with Heart Challenge project…with only hours to spare I might add…YIKES!
The bases of my project started with this empty jar that had Prima flowers in it. I thought wouldn’t it be perfect if I could somehow turn it into a snow globe??? After much thought and looking at my different diecuts I thought the Cookie Box die would make a perfect base for the snow globe. I cut it from Mat Board , grungy looking cardstock, printed the Tinted Babies printable and fussy cut out and then added embellishments. Below is the finished results.
I did center and trace the lid from the bottle on the diecut and then used a box cutter to cut a hole in the center. It fits perfectly and all I did was add a little bit of glue to keep it from coming out of the cookie box.
I also used the Holiday Greenery Die to cut the small flowers and leaves out. It added the perfect touch to the snow globe.
On a side note…I am almost finished with my NEW craft room/studio!!! It has taken almost a month and I am so ready to get all my craft supplies out of boxes and into shelves and cabinets! My parents have helped with the whole process which I am so thankful for them. This morning they brought my drafting table that I used in college to the house. I am loving the fact that I will have a table for my computers, printers and other electronically stuff on one wall and my drafting table will be facing the window so I can look outside for inspiration. 🙂 I think I will also have enough room for a small table to put in the center of the room in case I want to have friends over to craft with me. 😉 So if you have been wondering why I have been missing in action that is why. 🙂
For the hat it needs to be cone shaped. I free handed a pattern and once I got it the size I wanted it I traced it onto a vintage sheet of music and cut out. Now roll up to make a cone and then adhere. Also add tinsel around hat and glue to the head.
Draw a circle slightly bigger than the lib onto felt and cut out. Then adhere to the inside of lid over the smaller lid. Now adhere the snowman to the top of the smaller lid and then sprinkle shaved ice glitter over the felt.
Cut out four banners, Mod Podge, add glitter and let dry. Print the word WISH, cut apart and adhered to the banner. Thread onto baker’s twine alternating between beads and banner. I’m so please with how it turned out!!! I can’t wait to now display it on the mantel along with all my other Christmas decorations.
