Spring Snow Globe Baby

Hi everyone! I am here to share a very quick post with my Eileen Hull's Art with Heart Challenge project...with only hours to spare I might add...YIKES! 
The bases of my project started with this empty jar that had Prima flowers in it. I thought wouldn't it be perfect if I could somehow turn it into a snow globe??? After much thought and looking at my different diecuts I thought the Cookie Box die would make a perfect  base for the snow globe. I cut it from Mat Board , grungy looking cardstock, printed the Tinted Babies printable and fussy cut out and then added embellishments. Below is the finished results. 


I did center and trace the lid from the bottle on the diecut and then used a box cutter to cut a hole in the center. It fits perfectly and all I did was add a little bit of glue to keep it from coming out of the cookie box.


I also used the Holiday Greenery Die to cut the small flowers and leaves out. It added the perfect touch to the snow globe.


On a side note...I am almost finished with my NEW craft room/studio!!! It has taken almost a month and I am so ready to get all my craft supplies out of boxes and into shelves and cabinets! My parents have helped with the whole process which I am so thankful for them. This morning they brought my drafting table that I used in college to the house. I am loving the fact that I will have a table for my computers, printers and other electronically stuff on one wall and my drafting table will be facing the window so I can look outside for inspiration. :-) I think I will also have enough room for a small table  to put in the center of the room in case I want to have friends over to craft with me. ;-) So if you have been wondering why I have been missing in action that is why. :-) 


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!

  3. Fabulous creation. I love the candy box, it is one of my many favorites of Eileen's and you did a spectacular job making a fun filled snow globe. I love finding treasures like glass jars in my hoards of stashed stuff and this makes me want to go digging around. Thanks for joining us on Art with Heart Challenge.
