Jowilna’s Mason Jar Snow Globe Tutorial

I don’t think I ever owned a snow globe, what with living in the Southern Hemisphere and all. But I have always loved them and have a bit of a fascination with them – it always seems like you can get lost in the winter wonderland inside and drift off to a magical place.

So this year I decided to make my very own little snow globes. Here’s how I did it in a few easy steps:

  • Use your selected die-cut and Cuttlebug and cut some elements out of white cardstock. Use your quick release paper and place your die face up with the quick release paper on top, and then your cardstock.
  • TIP: quick release paper helps prevent the cardstock from sticking to the fine and detailed die cuts, and helps you to easily remove them.

  • Use your silver Brilliance ink pad and colour some of the cut elements. I used a snowflake die from Ultimate Crafts.

  • Open your mason jar and remove the lid part from the screw on rim. Place a small amount of hot glue on the lid and then place your die cut in the glue drop, then add more glue on top so it will hold the die cut securely.

    TIP: you will need to hold onto your die cut for a few seconds until the hot glue has cooled down and the die cut stands on its own.

  • Fill the jar with a combination of Epsom salt and glitter in the bottom to represent snow. Add small little Christmas ornaments in the snow and then replace the lid carefully so that the die cut snowflakes now hang from the top of the snow globe jar.

Finish off the jar on the outside with some bakers twine, ribbon and a festive vinyl quote or image cut on your Silhouette.
