Cool Yule "Snow" Ornament

I'm still here!!! Made it through the last craft fair and have been trying to finish up special orders and Christmas orders so please forgive the time between posts. I hope to get back on track soon. :)

Tis the season to make merry and give gifts. Here's a fun little gift that can be modified in so many different ways to fit so many different interests of the recipient. I sold these at the craft fairs with snowmen on polka dot backgrounds and trees on music backgrounds. I love snow globes so decided they'd be a fun as an ornament too. :)

How do you make it? Start with a favor tin and use some vintage sheet music or patterned paper to make a background - use a nesties circle or circle punch to get the round shape. Stamp and cut out a tree from A Muse Studio Cool Yule and the sentiment too. Add some spica glitter pen to shimmer it up. Pop up the tree and then double-pop up the sentiment to create layers. Punch a couple of hole in the top with your crop-a-dile, add a button detail to cover the holes and add some button love to the ornament. Then put in a pinch of fake snow for the "snow globe" effect" and glue the tin shut. You could do these as wedding favors or gifts for your church choir or as tags on your Christmas gifts or so much more. Have fun playing!!!

Have a wonderfully creative day!!! Consultant #1379
