How to make light up snow globe tags.

Hi, crafty friends!

This is Eiko and I make light up snow globe tags using Chibitronics and Papertreyink‘s Tinsel & Tags Kit.

This kit is a very popular limited kit released in 2014.

If you could get it, try making a glowing tag!

When I pull the pull tab, the stars flash and the windows glow.

I will make the parts referring to the picture below.

  • Die cut a kraft cardstock with the scalloped circle die.
  • Die cut a 2mm thick kraft foam sheet with the scalloped circle and circle dies.
  • Die cut a white cardstock with the circle die for circuit.
  • Die cut a blue cardstock with the snow scene die.
  • Die cut a vellum paper with the circle die.
  • Die cut a 2mm thick white foam sheet and double-sided tape with two circle dies.
  • Die cut a white cardstock with tree, snowman, deer scene dies.
  • Die cut a white cardstock with the house and roof dies.
  • Die cut a red cardstock with the small banner die.
  • Cut the vellum paper for the windows.
