Faux Snowglobe

Here is my first attempt at a faux snowglobe. It really is WAY easier than it looks!

1) Using a cutting system, cut a transparency in a 2 7/8″ circle, leaving a small gap before you complete the circle (you can then cut a tab).
2) Stamp your snowflake in stazon white, so that the top is opposite the tab.
3) Apply white embossing powder on your image and flick off.
4) Emboss the snowflake.
5) Wait a few minutes, then roll up and insert into glass ornmanent, keeping the tab sticking up into the top of the ornament.
6) Add Buffalo Snow, or Diamond Dust into the ornament.
7) Punch out a 3/4 ” circle and cut two slits in it, opposite each other.
8) Place this in the metal ornament topper.
9) Cover a fruit can in desired paper ( I used a jello cup)
10) Add crystal effects around edge of can.
11) Turn over ornament onto can and leave to dry.
12) Add ribbon as desired.

Tag Snowflake Tutorial


Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted. Now that school has settled down and my show @ EPAC is over, I thought I’d get caught up in my blogs.
So, to relaunch my blog, I have hear for you a Tag Snowflake Tutorial.

Supply list:
Vellum (either cardstock weight or lightweight)
Whisper White Cardstock
Large Tag Punch
Small Tag Punch
2 way glue pen
Dazzling Diamonds
Snowflake Punch
Clear rhinestone brad
1) Punch 8 – 16 Small Tags, leaving a large enough gap between each for later.
2) Go back over what you punched with the LARGE tag punch – thus creating tag “frames”.
3) Using the 2 way glue pen, glue down a tag frame onto your vellum.
4) Repeat process, but line up diagonal side of the frame with the diagonal side of the other frame.
5) Continue the process, and you will end up with a “cross”.
6) Glue down a tag frame on top of what you have already done at a 45 degree angle, and repeat the process for 3 more.
7) Snip off the “bottoms” of the tags to reveal the snowflake.
8) Punch out a snowflake from the Whisper White.
9) Fasten the tag snowflake and punched snowflake with the Rhinestone Brad.

Variation – layer 2 or more for an ultimate dynamic effect!!
