New Enchanting Snowglobe Deep Edge Die
by Donna Sledzik

Happy Friday!

Today I am featuring the Enchanting Snowglobe Deep Edge Die from the new Winter 2017 Collection from Memory Box.


If you have been following the blog posts this week, you have seen so many creative projects using the new Deep Edge dies.  These dies are designed to cut through many layers of material. Felt, fabric and acetate are just some of many examples!

For my project I used a combination of felt, thin cork board and heavy weigh watercolor paper.  I was able to cut through three layers of each material using the new metal shim that was designed to use with the deep edge dies.  That way you can prep several projects at once.


I die cut the trees, house and "Let it Snow" from heavy weight watercolor paper and inked them with distress inks. To incorporate different textures I die cut the snow hill and globe from felt and the base of the snow globe from metallic cork paper. I glued them together and moved onto the snow! I dotted on white acrylic paint to create a snowing effect, as well as adding some to the house and trees. While the paint was wet I added my favorite part, glitter! I felt like the ornament was missing something but was not sure what. I was looking around my craft room and came across some batting and thought "this could work as smoke!". I torn a small piece off and glued it beneath the chimney to add some more dimension to the house. Lastly, to give the ornament a finished look and add stability I cut an addition snow globe from felt and placed my string in between the two layers.

this is a very nice ornament. I love the way you did the snow!

Lovely ornament!

I love this beautiful ornament! Gorgeous scene on the snowglobe and the die is so cool! xxx

Oh, I am obsessed with snow globes! I LOVE your ornament! Very, very cute!

This globe might be my favorite of all the new sets! Love the ornament!

Love your project...just adorable.

Very cute ornament - love that you added sparkle to the wet paint and the little bit of batting was perfect for the smoke !

Such a wonderful ornament, love the impact of snow, love it!

Your smoke is absolutely inspired! Love everything about this gorgeous ornament!

This is Adorable!!!

What an adorable ornament! I'm looking forward to cutting thicker materials to make key rings and handbag charms...

Glad you added the batting as smoke, it makes it look more authentic.

WoW!!! Your snowglobe ornament is gorgeous!!!! I love snowglobes, they make me happy!!! The smoke coming out of the chimney is a fantastic idea! If a person doesn't have quilt batting, or stuffing I was thinking we could use cosmetic cotton balls, they pull apart very easily. I love that the deep edge snowglobe die comes with the trees and the cabin, that is a fantastic die set. The evergreen landscape is the perfect background for the house, now I need that die too! This would be a fun project to make with my grandkids. With the deep edge dies I would be able to cut the thicker acetate packaging that I have been saving. Thin dies can't cut that stuff, I have tried and it doesn't work. Deep Edge dies are very exciting! Thank you for sharing this beautiful, creative, inspiring snowglobe ornament today.

Love this snow globe ornament and the variety of materials you used to create it.

Wonderful snow globe project!!!! I love the new snow globe die!!!

Your snow globe ornament is awesome! The batting worked really well for the chimney smoke, very clever. Just the right amount of snow to give it the snow globe feel.

Beautiful Christmas ornament!

I have really enjoyed this entire series of projects. Your snowglobe is beautiful, and, as a lot of the other beautiful inspiration, I think it would make a really cute addition to a gift bag or as a tag. Adorable. The deep edge dies appear to be really amazing!!

Cool smoke!

Beautiful snow globe ornament!

Wow!! I think this is my favorite of the new dies so far. I just love the snowglobe design with the little cabin in the woods. Great way to add the snow for a realistic effect and that wisp of smoke coming out of the chimney is the best idea yet!

This die and your ornament are fabulous! I love that you used cork for the snowglobe base, and all the little details make this so special. Your glittery snow and the smoke are creative and fun. LOVE this winter scene so much!

What a wonderful ornament. Your for detail makes this so special.

This is super cute what is really cool all the things you need are right there.

One of my fondest memories from childhood was playing with a snow globe at my grandmother's house. I still remember the little scene inside and could play with it for hours. Your ornament is just beautiful and I love the mix of materials that these dies cut.
