Ornament Snow globe

Here is what you need to make a Ornament Snow globe:

Clear Glass ornament (I used a 3.26 in)
Permanent Markers
Crystal Effects (or glue)
Aluminum Foil
Votive Candle holder (big enough to fit the bottom of the ornament in)

Step 1: Take acetate and cut a 3.26 circle (or the same size as the ornament you are going to

Step 2: Stamp your image on the acetate circle in stazon and let it dry for about 15min. Once
ink is dry you can color image in if you so desire.

Step 3: Once you have let image dry after coloring it you will then want to roll it up so you can
fit it in the ornament making sure that the bottom of you image is facing the hole in
the ornament (I used tweezers to get the acetate in ornament) you will want the image
in the middle of the ornament.

Step 4: Once you have gotten the acetate in the ornament and have it positioned how you
want it, you will now take the snow and add it to the globe on both sides of the acetate
(you don't want to add to much snow but just enough to cover the prongs on the
ornament holder)

Step 5: Once you have gotten the snow added you will then want to add the aluminum foil (just a small square to make sure you are covering the hole) this will stop any snow from falling out, you will then add the stopper to the ornament (ornament holder) putting tape over the middle of the ornament holder. (see pic )
Step 6: Take your votive candle holder and place your globe in it to making sure it fits and you don't see any of the bottom of the ornament. If it does fit then you will want to take the crystal effects and run it along the edge and the top of the inside of the votive candle holder then you will need to put the ornament back in to the votive holder and together very carefully (making sure the crystal effects is adhering to the globe and candle holder)
Step 7: You can now decorate the edge of the votive candle holder with ribbon if you want. (see pic of finished snow globe below)
Once you get the hang of this its not as difficult as it seems. If you need better instructions you can find them on Splitcoast Stampers. Stay tuned for tomorrows Christmas Gift idea. I will be showing you how to make the picture/calendar holder. Have a good evening and
Until my next rambling :)
