Step-by-Step Snow Globe Card Instructions
WHAT'S IN THE KIT:
• 12 Winter Scenes Die-Cut Card Toppers in 6 designs
• 4 Sheets of Die-Cut Decoupage in 6 designs
• 12 Inserts in 6 designs
• 12 Aperture Cards in 6 designs
• 6 Display Globes
• 1 Pack of Polar White Flower Soft®
• 1 Sheet of Double Sided Die-Cut 3D Bows
• 1 Sheet of Silver Snowflake Stickers
• 6 Large Christmas Treat Boxes in 6 designs
• 6 x White Envelopes
STEP 1: Begin by choosing a design from the die cut decoupage sheets included and pop out all elements of the design.
Following the layer order on the sheet, assemble your 3D decoupage snow globe scene using foam pads or silicone glue then stick down on top of the corresponding Snow Globe topper.
STEP 2: Take your display globe and attach double-sided tape to both sides of the outer rim.
Peel back the tape on the bottom of the rim and, before sticking it down on top of your assembled design, place a small amount (less is more!) of Polar White Flower Soft® to the centre of your design ready for your display globe to seal it all in.
STEP 3: Peel back the tape on the top of the rim of your display globe and stick onto the inside of your 5x7 aperture card behind the aperture cutout.
Choose one of the 5x7 insert papers and fold in half. Place inside your card and glue down, covering the back of the display globe.
STEP 4: Now it’s time to get creative! Choose from the included die cut sentiments, double sided 3D bows and shimmering silver peel-off stickers to embellish the card with your own unique design. Then pick one of the pillow boxes (also included) for your card to fit inside. Keep reading to learn how to assemble the Pillow Treat Boxes and 3D Bow Creations.

How to assemble a Pillow Treat Box
STEP 1: Fold back the long thin glue tab and apply adhesive then, following the pre-scored crease line in the center of your flat treat box, fold the bottom section up to meet the glue tab and secure in place.
STEP 2: Now that the basic shape of your treat box is formed, you can now fold in the ends. Follow the pre-scored fold lines and one by one, bend each end into place.
Each assembled treat box is perfect for posting your Snow Globe Shaker Cards.
Make a 3D Bow
SMALL BOWS: Select a small bow and pop it out of the die cut sheet. Next, take a ruler and score along both dotted lines, then fold over to form your bow shape. Making sure the knot is on top, glue into place. You can stop here for a flat bow or you can add dimension to your bow by carefully pinching each loop with your fingers.
LARGE BOWS: Select your bow and pop all three pieces out from the die cut sheet. To create the loops, grab piece 'A', take each outer point and bring it over towards the centre point and glue into place as you go (make sure you don’t fold your bow flat, we want a 3D rounded look). Once formed, glue on top of piece 'B' to add the ribbon tails. Finally, add the knot by wrapping piece 'C' around the centre of your bow.
