Starry Night Snow Globe Ornament Instructions:

Call me crazy but when I opened my parcel from Therm O Web that contained the package of Glitter Dust Photo Corners, the first thing I saw was a line of little gold roofed houses!

To create your tiny houses, draw a ‘door’ onto the Glitter Dust Photo Corners with a white gel pen and then colour over the gel pen with a gold glitter pen.   Set them aside to dry (you will need two houses for your snow globe ornament).

Colour white cardstock with various shades of blue Distress Inks (Weathered Wood, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire were used here) and die cut a background with the Snowglobe #2 die, securing the die in place with iCraft Purple Tape.  Die cut ‘stars’ into the top of the snow globe background with the Winter Wonderland die.

Preheat your laminator and cover two pieces of PeelnStick Toner Sheet with Silver Shattered Glass Deco Foil Transfer sheet and Silver Stars Deco Foil Transfer sheet.  Die cut another snow globe from the Shattered Glass foiled Toner Sheet with the Snowglobe #2 die and die cut some stars from the Silver Stars foiled Toner Sheet, using the Swirling Stars die.

Colour another piece of white cardstock with Distress Inks in shades of green and blue (Iced Spruce, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles, Weathered Wood, and Stormy Sky were used here) and die cut some evergreens with the Treeline die.  Adhere the Silver Shattered Glass snow globe die cut behind the blue snow globe die cut with iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive and then layer the Treeline die cut along the bottom edge, trimming off the edges as necessary.

Cover a small piece of white cardstock with iCraft Easy-Cut Adhesive, remove the remaining piece of backing paper and burnish on a piece of Opal Deco Foil Transfer sheet.  Die cut some ‘snow’ with the Snowglobe #2 die.

Die cut two snow globe bases from sanded gold Metallic Kraft Stock.  Die cut several more bases from kraft cardstock.

Adhere one of the gold Metallic Kraft Stock base pieces and several of the kraft cardstock base pieces together with iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive, sandwiching the kraft cardstock bases behind the gold.  Leave the back gold Metallic Kraft Stock die cut off at this time.  You are looking to make your snow globe base piece the same width as the snow globe itself, I ended up sandwiching about five kraft cardstock bases between the two gold Metallic Kraft Stock die cuts to get the same dimensions.

Adhere the Opal Deco Foil ‘snow bank’ to the bottom of the snow globe background with iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive and add a couple of the Glitter Dust Photo Corner houses.  Peel the backing paper from the foiled PeelnStick Toner Sheet stars and stick them to the sky.  Adhere the layered gold Metallic Kraft Stock base to the bottom of the snow globe by adding some tape strips on the back side (they will be covered up shortly!) and add a line of iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive along the bottom edge where the two pieces join to adhere them together securely.

Foil a piece of Starry Night Deco Foil Clear Designer Toner Sheet with Silver Stars Deco Foil Transfer sheet.  Die cut another snow globe from it with the Snowglobe #2 die.

Lay down a thin line of iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive around the edges of the snow globe and layer the foiled Starry Night Clear Designer Toner Sheet over top.

Add a line of Platinum Stickles Glitter Glue around the edges of the snow globe and set aside to dry thoroughly.

For the back of your snow globe ornament, sand another piece of gold Metallic Kraft Stock and stamp a Christmas sentiment onto it with black permanent ink and clear emboss it (this stamp is from the Doodle Greetings 1 stamp set).  Die cut another snow globe from the stamped Metallic Kraft Stock with the Snowglobe #2 die.  You could also personalize your ornament by adding the name of the recipient if giving it as a gift or add the year if desired.

Adhere the stamped snow globe onto the back of your ornament by peeling off the backing paper from the PeelnStick Toner Sheet and adding some iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive here and there where needed.  Adhere the remaining gold Metallic Kraft Stock base to the back of the snow globe with iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive.  Edge the back and sides of your ornament with more Platinum Stickles Glitter Glue and set aside to dry thoroughly.

Once the Glitter Glue has dried, punch a hole in the top of your snow globe ornament and add a piece of gold toned ribbon as a hanger.  If desired, die cut a garland and some bows with the Village Christmastime die from green Classic Kraft Stock and Metallic Kraft Stock.  Adhere the garland across the base of the snow globe with iCraft Ultra Bond Adhesive both front and back.  You could also personalize your ornament by adding a name or date to the base instead.

And with that, your Starry Night Snow Globe Christmas ornament is complete!

Here are a few close ups of the finished ornament.

Hope that you have enjoyed seeing how it came together and that you’ve been inspired to get a start on your own Christmas holiday decorations with these wonderful products from Therm O Web.  Thanks as always for stopping by today and happy Christmas crafting!
