Another Snow Globe Ornament

Hello everyone! It's time for my monthly post on The BugBytes and I am going to share with you another snowglobe ornament, like the one I made for the blog hop, but this one is a little more grown up. I also took a few more pictures so hopefully it is clearer how it all comes together!

 The details: 
So this is a very similar process to my previous post, I begin with a two piece ornament from Micheals and a  3.05 circle cut out of a recycled cartridge clamshell. Then I placed my scene on the acetate with black and white vinyl. The Santa (1 inch), trees (1.80 inch) and the church (1 inch) are from the Christmas solutions cartridge. I cut each image twice (once regular and once flipped) so that it looks the same from both sides. So this is what it looks like before I assemble it.

I filled the two halves with snowflake glitter and then I get ready to place the acetate inside. In this picture you can see there is an inner lip where the circle will fit (ignore badly manicured finger):

The circle fits in perfectly cut at that size and then I have one half of my ornament complete. 

And then I carefully slide the other side of the ornament in and add a ribbon to the top to keep it together. I didn't think it was necessary to add glue until I came home and saw what my two year old had done to it when my husband was "watching" her *SIGH* all that wasted glitter.

Apologies for the bad picture, but I think Yukon Jack is peeking out there to say hi! I hope these instructions help in understanding the process a little better and I really hope there are some of these left on clearance by the time I get to Michael's again!


  1. That's gorgeous. Yep I love this one. TFS

  2. Cute - sorry about the first ornament mishap, I'm sure it was just an accident :)

  3. This is so adorable, I just love it. When I saw your first ornament I ran to Michaels to get an ornament and they were nowhere to be found. I finally found one mixed in with some plastic stuff so I ran home and made a little snowman scene. I just posted it on my blog and when I was linking it back to your blog (for the inspiration) I saw your second ornament. I just love what you did with these, I am a new follower of your blog. I am going to get a head start on these next year. Feel free to check out my blog if you would like to see what I created. Thanks again for the inspiration!


  4. This is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! and I have that cart....TFS!! I'm going to scraplift this for next year. Your tutorial was SUPER!!
