Snow globe

another Valentine project, I made a snow globe using a Rick St. Dennis MFA digi

below the pics you will find how I made it (Also see Rick's blog for more details and ideas)

you will need a jar, glitter,ribbon, liquid glycerin, distilled water, a glue gun, laminator, some decoration

first clean the jar and the lid

I first coloured the cupid and cut him out (use some sturdier paper to print the digi on)

then laminated him to make the digi waterproof and cut out again (you have to make sure to cut around the image in a way that keeps it sealed in the plastic)

glue the laminated digi to the inside of the lid using glue gun and add some decoration, I used hearts and silk roses.  (make sure you can still put the lid on the jar when everything is glued on)

put some glitter in the jar and fill with distilled water and add some liquid glycerin so the glitter won't drop to the bottom immediately but will float a bit

put the lid on the jar and check if it is waterproof, to be sure you can use the glue gun to glue the lid on the jar to make it waterproof if it is still leaking

glue some ribbon around the edge of the lid

I am entering the following challenges:  snow much fun ( Snow globe has glitter snow in it, duh!)  (first time I made one of thes, so totally new to me) love is in the air challenge (cupid is inside the snow globe and lots of hearts) Anything goes first snow globe i ever made so that's new for me


  1. ziet er geweldig uit! Super leuk.

  2. Absolutely adorable, Monique! So sweet. Thanks for showing how you made the cute little snow globe, too - perfect with the Valentine theme going on - creatively clever! LOL

  3. How clever you are! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge, Monique!

  4. It's a really great snow globe Monique and so eye-catching. But afraid it's not eligible for Penny Black and More, but as mentioned in our monthly posts we do not allow the use of digi images.

    I hope you have time to join in again with another piece of your lovely work using the stamped image.
