The WonderBasement

Welcome to a wide, wonderful world of surprises!

A snow globe and stamping??? Oh, yeah!

Tonya Dieterlen

I made a little discovery this past week and I'm so excited to share with you! I was playing with the SU! treat tubes, filling them with fun treats and gifts. I put some glitter inside and was trying to figure out a way to drop some cute little sequins and shapes inside...and I had a brain blast?! What if I could make a snow globe, of sorts with the treat tube? Could it be done? Would I possibly have everything I need to create this masterpiece of creativity???

Okay, ya'll know if you have this great crafty idea, for you to actually have ALL the elements to make said idea is clearly a sign from above that YES, you are suppose to make this amazing little item. Oh, the joy of looking at online instructions to see all you need to create a snow globe is a waterproof container,  water, glycerin or corn syrup and a way to seal the container. My brain was pumping and firing on ALL creative cylinders and...and...well, this!

Easy Peasy Directions: I filled the container up to about 1/4" away from the bottom of the cork stopper, then added 10 drops of glycerin, and SU!'s dazzling diamonds glitter. Look at that SPARKLE!!

Oh, then I thought what if I would add some ink to color the water??? 3 drops of Pool Party re-inker and BOOM! What a lovely shade of Caribbean blue!  I sealed the cork with a little hot glue around the cork and pressed it into the top.

It was SO much fun to make. I plan on making these at several gift classes AND wouldn't this be cute for a little girl's mermaid party?! They make super cute ornaments, too. 

I couldn't stop with just one! I made another with water tinted pink, then put some red seed beads and punched window sheets. I used the Seasonal Chums stamp set and sat the snowman on top of some White embossing paste and sprinkled it all with GLORIOUS dazzling diamonds glitter. 

What has been your latest, greatest crafting creation??? Tomorrow I'll share a little video of these beauties in action!!! love, Tonya
