My snow globe shaker gift bag project today is straight from the Snow Globe Project Book & Papercraft CD!
My project base is a simple white gift bag purchased from Walmart. I printed off the blue snowflake background papers from the FS CD, making two layers.
The base layer is securely taped to the plain gift bag, just to cover the very front.
My top layer is the snow globe panel layer. I printed more blue snowflake background paper from the CD, then used an oval Spellbinder to cut the opening for the snow globe. I used the largest oval die so that I would have a white border surrounding the globe. The next size oval down fits the snow globe just perfectly!
Take a look at the dimension and detail that the paper tole affords...as you can see in the picture, my penguin and star are four layers deep!
Just before assembling the snow globe, I added Polar White Flower Soft to create the shaker effect. Polar White FS is also glued to the background...coming all together for a snowy, icy scene!
A bit of Offray ribbon and homemade snowflake finish this gift bag...one that will make for a fun gift presentation for young or old!
A quick note about the snowflake: my husband purchased a bunch of these pretty homemade snowflakes (some angels as well--for a future project!) from an elderly woman at a craft sale. She was charging only 50 cents per flake! What beautiful artwork, for oh so little a cost!
Be sure to keep your eyes open for finds like this--craft sales are abundant before the holidays!
I hope that you've enjoyed this post...it was a lot of fun to put together! Be sure to check out the new CD and snow globes at Flower Soft and at the Flower Soft Blog!
