  1. To create the snow globe, punch out two xxx-large circles. Cut one of your circles in half to use as the globe base. Overlap and glue the full circle to the base. Punch a “Up on the Roof Top” border along the edge of a paper. Feed the bordered edge of the paper partially into the XXX-Large circle punch, punch out your shape, and glue it on top of the globe with the border on the top.
  2. Punch out a pair of penguins and adhere them to the globe using dimensional foam adhesive dots. Finally, glue a handful of tiny pom-poms on the bottom of the globe to create the snow. Use double-stick tape or dimensional dots to adhere the tag to your package.

Use the bottom half as your base to build a little vignette. Use your hot glue gun to attach several punched trees and a little deer or other plastic holiday figurine. Attach to the top of a vertically positioned package using double-stick tape.

What a great idea. I love wrapping presents and usually end up doing it for others too. I have done so many different ideas. I wrapped kids stuff in the Sunday funnies. A friend who travels a lot got hers wrapped In an old map. Now I can get even fancier. 3D has come to my decoRating.
