Flower Soft Candy Globe

Here's a quick and easy project featuring the Flower Soft Project Book & Papercraft CD ROM. This hanging candy snow globe is filled with wrapped caramels, ready to hang on someone's doorknob or coat peg. This is a perfect teacher gift, one that your child would enjoy helping out to create!

There is no stamping on this project. The background paper and snowman are downloads to be printed from Flower Soft's new CD. There are many different character frames to chose from, as well as multiple background paper designs available (in fact, 25 designs in 4 colorways!).

Polar White Flower Soft was used to provide fluff and flake to the snowman.
Prismatics Papaya Puree Pack, from Our Daily Bread designs, was used for the rich, textured background. What a gorgeous, deep color! This is the first Prismatics paper that I used...if you have not used it before, let me tell you a bit about it! One side has a subtle texture, almost an orange peel effect--the other side smooth. The Prismatic Packs from ODBD come in 12 X 12" sheets in three saturations: dark, medium, and light. There are also suggestions of accent colors right on the pack, ready to help out with mixing it up a bit! So fun! I can see more of this paper in my future!
A computer renerated sentiment, Stampin' Up punched hanging tabs, American Crafts Elements brads, twine, and a Basic Grey button tie this one up.
I hope that you enjoyed this sweet treat design! Have a great remainder to your week!
