Winter Snow Globe

I just added the finishing touches to another Christmas present I have been working on.  This one is a Snowglobe I made using a bowl from the Dollar store, a Cookie tin from Wal Mart, some mini Christmas trees from JoAnn's, my Cricut, and two adorable Magnolia images.  I used the Winter Fence and Snowy Hug, colored them with Copics and cut them out by hand.  The paper I used was from last year's Winter Blues from the Paper Studio.  I adhered the paper to my tin, added a ribbon around the lip of it and adhered my images and trees to the top of the tin using Scor-Tape.  I think it creates a beautiful winter scene and I love the way it turned out!  I then cut out the word "Believe" from my Christmas Solutions cartridge and glued it to the front of the tin.  I added a sentiment that says "Those who don't believe in magic will neve find it".  I thought it went perfectly along with the magic of the Christmas season!  I added a TON of diamond stickles everywhere on the two images to make them sparkle and shine through the glass.  Finally I added some Polar White Flowersoft for snow to make the perfect white winter display when shaken!

A close-up of the image and scene through the glass:

Here's a side angle so you can seee the dimension that is created by the snow-covered trees, the fence, and Tilda and Snowy.

One of the sentiment and scene:

And finally, one without the flash on so you can see the image clearly without a glare:  I hope you like it!
