I have to admit… I have fallen for the Anthropologie snow globes from this last holiday season! While I was putting all of my holiday decorations away I just couldn't part with my snow globes. I decided that I would make a Valentine's Day version. Here you have it… my Valentine Snow Globe.
I took my Anthro inspired snow globe and removed the trees and safely stored it for next year. Then I used my Epic tool and my new Sweetheart Nesting Scallop Heart die from Lifestyle Crafts to make the pink heart. I made two and then placed them back to back with two, two inch pieces of a paper drinking straw in the middle to secure to the bottom of the lid with some large 3D glue dots.

Then I used a fun felt Christmas tree ornament for the large heart. You could of course, make another paper heart for the large one. I just happened to have the perfect felt heart already on hand. I did the same with the two felt hearts. I placed them back to back and placed two, three inch paper straws in between to help secure the heart to the lid. They were a little wonky so I used a small section of the paper straw and some glue dots in between the hearts to secure them a little better…
Don't worry, people won't notice the straws at all. It will just look like you have beautiful hearts floating in your snow globe! What else do you think we can do with the ever popular snow globe?1
