This Make-Your-Own-Snowglobe card has a little twist - it is re-animating something you might see every morning! :)

Step 1: Make the Snowglobe Base

First, let's talk about the base of the snowglobe. It's made with the word window punch and Basic Black Cardstock.

To make the base, you need to get creative with the punch.

The bottom of the base is just a regular punched piece with this punch.

The second level - the shorter one - you have to modify a little.

The height of a punched word window is about 3/8".

So cut a longish strip of Basic Black cardstock that is 3/8" wide.

Feed one end into the punch and punch what will become the left side of your snowglobe base, leaving the right side squared off.

Then take the small piece you've punched and insert it into your punch from the opening, line it up and make it the length you want your finished piece to be, make sure it's level, and punch - it will round off the right hand side of your snowglobe base perfectly.

My top level is maybe a little less than 1/2" shorter than the standard word window length.

When that is done, use mini glue dots to attach it to.. ?

What is that? Look at the fabby texture, the nice warm kraft color. How much did THAT cost? It must be some crazy new accessory that's all the rage. Better go to the next step!
This is very nice :)
I liked the detailed instructions and the photos are great! - so good that even I could make one myself... Plus, I liked the fact that I have found another way to make use of those "expensive" punches I've bought! Love the final result! This one gets a five-star vote!
this is good but its more just a card with a base with a circle with glitter sprinkles but THE SNOWMAN IS AOUSAM AND THE FINAL PRODUCT IS VERY GOOD and its cheap
