Make a beautiful snow globe gift box for the holidays. This is a sponsored post.
I love to turn clear ornaments into snow globes and other unexpected decor. For this project, I’m using beautiful papers and stickers from Graphic 45 with my Xyron Creative Station to create a unique and festive gift box for Christmas gift giving. Won’t this be cute filled with cookies, gift cards, or other small gifts?
Supplies Used to Make a Snow Globe Gift Box: (affiliate links included)
- Graphic 45 Collection Pack 12×12 cm Collection Pack 12×12
- Xyron Creative Station, 9″ with 5″ Option
- Large Plastic Ornament from Dollar Tree
- Paper Mache Round Container with Lid
- Hot Glue Gun
- Seam Binding Ribbon
- Ultrafine Glitter
- Cotton Ball
- Miniature Tree
Start by fussy cutting the adorable Kewpie Christmas dolls from the 12×12 inch paper. I cut all three dolls out because they are so cute I had to include them all!
Hot glue the paper dolls to the miniature Christmas tree.
Remove the base from the large ornament. Carefully insert the tree into the globe. Sprinkle the ultrafine glitter inside the globe if desired.
Hot glue a piece of cotton to the base of the tree, and push the base of the tree into the ornament. Hot glue it in place. Hot glue the cap back onto the ornament, and hot glue a star on top. Set aside for now.
Use two of the sticker tape strips from the pack to decorate the rim of the lid for the box.
Cut a circle for the top of the lid. Roll it through the Xyron Creative Station to add adhesive, and glue it to the top of the box.
Cut a strip of patterned paper to fit around the container. Use the Xyron again to adhere the paper to the box.
Hot glue the ornament to the lid of the box. Wrap the base with green crinkled seam binding. Add some red crinkled seam binding to one of the coordinating paper tags, and tie it onto the lid as well.
This DIY snow globe gift box is such a sweet way to give a present to someone, don’t you think? It’s very quick to make so you could have several ready before the holidays start.
