How To Make An Easy Snow Globe Card --Kat Scrappiness Blog Hop For Coffee Oasis


Welcome to our blog hop to support a great cause!  There are loads of prizes, so don't forget to comment here on this post (not on YouTube as this is technically a blog hop) if you want to be in the drawings.   Also, please take a moment to learn about the Coffee Oasis and how you can help homeless teens.  Details below!

Here is the project for today:

The complete process is on this YouTube link, but abbreviated instructions below:

Coffee Oasis is a coffee shop/organization located in Washington State that provides help for our youth including programs for drug abuse, homelessness, violence and poverty. (You can read more about their programs here: )

We are hoping that this blog hop will bring awareness to organizations such as Coffee Oasis and that we can raise a little money and support for them! Kat Scrappiness has pledged to donate 15% of all sales proceeds to Coffee Oasis and our other sponsors have all donated prizes to give away to all of you blog and youtube hoppers! So please visit them and show some support. You can also donate directly to Coffee Oasis here: Even if you can only donate $1 or $5, it doesn't matter. Every little bit will help a kid in need.

To donate directly, click HERE.

(I am donating all of my proceeds for any purchases using my product links below or through the Kat Scrappiness badge on the right margin through 12/10/2018! So shop away!!)
Back to the project!

You don't have to use special dies to make the snow globe. Just a plain circle and rectangle will work!

-Die cut 3 white rectangles from heavy weight card (Neenah 110#) and 1 from silver glitter card.
-Die cut 1 heavy weight card circle.
-Have 1 4.25" x 5.5" sheet of heat resistant acetate and 1 of white heavy card the same size.
-Decorate the 4.25" x 5.5" sheet of white card, keeping in mind the size of your circle.
-Lay the acetate over top and decorate if desired, allowing the acetate to overhang the top at least     1/4".  Heat set. 
-Fold the acetate sheet over the back of the card piece and secure with heavy duty double-sided tape.
-Partial die cut the circle by hanging die a little over the top so it won't cut complete circle.  This will   be your hinge.
-Attach the rectangles by gluing the top glitter one, then lining up a white one to cover the back. 
  Line up the back set as well.
-Finish decorating and you are done!

Don't forget to comment below to be entered in a huge drawing! The sponsors are at the bottom of the page. Good Luck!

Don't forget to visit the other blogs on the hop!

I'll be back soon with some final holiday cards!
