Still Scenes Polar Bear Snow Globe Shaker Box
A fun, interactive gift box made with Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- 3-1/4" square from Seaside Spray Cardstock
- 3-1/8" square of one of the white leafy patterns on silver background design from Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Series Paper
- 4 pieces each 3/4" x 3-1/4" of same design from Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Series Paper
- 2 pieces each 2" x 2-3/4" of white dots on silver background design from Feels Like Frost 6" x 6" Specialty Series Paper
- 1-1/4" x 3" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1-3/4" x 3" from Seaside Spray Cardstock
Fold along all score lines and assemble a Mini Pizza Box.
Adhere the four skinny rectangles of leafy white pattern on silver Feels Like Frost Specialty Designer Paper to the sides of the box.
Tear about 1/4" of paper off one long edge of both pieces of the white dots on silver Feels Like Frost Designer Paper strips.
Adhere the strips to the Seaside Spray square so they overlap each other a bit and the top, torn edge of the top strip is about 1-3/4" from the bottom edge. Make sure you leave at least 1/4" of Seaside Spray showing on the bottom, left, and right edges.
Pick out the large and small polar bear dies from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. Put them on top of the Whisper White strip on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Make sure the dies do NOT overlap. Run through the machine. Use the Take Your Pick paper-piercing tool to remove the pieces.
Adhere the polar bear cut outs to the center of the Seaside Spray rectangle so they are facing each other and their noses touch and their feet are tucked under the top edge of the top torn designer paper strip.
Adhere the large square of Seaside Spray Cardstock with the polar bears and torn designer paper strips attached to the top of the box using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Pick out the top of the snow globe die from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. Put it on top of the square of Feels Like Frost Designer Paper on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so it is centered side to side and as close as possible to the top edge. Run through the machine.
Tip: You are using the large square of designer paper with the shape cut out of the top on this project. Throw away the flattened circle cut out of designer paper or save it to use as scrap on a future project.
Pick out a Snow Globe Shaker Dome.
Peel the protective backing off the FRONT of the rim around the Snow Globe Shaker Dome. Adhere the designer paper square with the dome cut out of it over the top of the shaker dome.
You may need to carefully cut off the top of the plastic dome where it sticks up a little from the top of the designer paper square. If you do need to cut it off, use regular scissors so you don't dull your Paper Snips. Also make sure NOT to cut below the line of adhesive holding the dome in place or you'll have a gap at the top of the shaker dome where the sequins can come out.
Put strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive around the edges of the dome on the back of the designer paper square.
Put a large pinch of the Snowflake Sequins on top of the polar bear cut outs on the top of the box.
Peel the protective backing off the BACK of the rim of the Snow Globe Shaker Dome and off the Tear & Tape strips around the edges. Adhere the designer paper/shaker dome square to the top of the box so it is centered on the Seaside Spray square. Press firmly along the edges of the snow globe to make a tight seal so none of the sequins can escape.
Mount the snow globe base image from the Still Scenes Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Misty Moonlight Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Seaside Spray rectangle.
Pick out the open snow globe base die from the Snow Globe Scenes Dies. Put it on top of the stamped snow globe base image on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine so the image is centered. Run through the machine.
You will need to use Paper Snips to cut off the bottom of the snow globe base cut out so it isn't too big.
Use Stampin' Seal+ to adhere the cut down snow globe base cut out to the top of the box so it butts up to the bottom of the snow globe dome.
Cut an 8" piece of the Seaside Spray 1/4" Metallic Ribbon.
Tie a small bow in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon bow to the top of the box at an angle on the lower left side of the shaker dome.
Insert gift into box and close.
