Snow Globe Christmas Card

I've been playing around with the bubble wrap again.  I have an entire roll of the stuff so I'm trying to put it to good fun use. This time I'm making bubble wrap Christmas cards.  The bubble wrap is really what makes this card come to life and gives it a 3-D effect.

This snow globe card is easy and fast to make.  The template is created to make two cards.  Simple directions below.

Supplies:
Template - Click here for printable template
White Cardstock
Large Bubble Wrap - circles should be 1 inch in diameter
White Glitter
Glue
Scissors
Toothpicks
Round-edge punch - optional

1.  Print template out on cardstock.  Cut in half to make two cards.  Fold in half.

2.  Sprinkle a little glitter on the snowman.  You do not need to glue it.

3.  Cut out on bubble wrap circle.  On the flat side of the bubble run glue around the edge of the circle.

4.  Place bubble on the printed blue circle.  Run a toothpick around the edge of the bubble to secure it to the paper.

5. Clip corners of card with round-edge punch.

This is so great! I had no idea bubble wrap can be so see-through! I remember seeing some giant bubble wrap around here somewhere... Ehehee...
