Since getting out the Christmas decorations, Adam has been fascinated by our snowglobe. He can spend ages shaking the ornament and watching the snow fall. As a result, Adam has asked continuously if he could make his own snowglobe. As this months Bostik theme is snow, we decided to create an easy Paper Plate Snowglobe.

Materials needed to make a Paper Plate Snowglobe
* Two Blue Paper Plates
* Snowman foam sticker
* Glitter pipe cleaner
* Bostik White Glu
* Stapler (optional)
How to make a Paper Plate Snowglobe
1. Position the ribbon on a blue plate. Unpeel the backing of the foam snowman sticker and place it on top of the ribbon and plate. Push the snowman sticker down.
2. Cut out a snowman hat from the black glitter card and use the fine end of the Bostik Fine and Wide Glu Pen to add glue to secure the hat in place. Tie the ribbon in a knot and cut away any excess ribbon.
4. Cut out a small triangle from orange card and glue this in position for the snowman’s nose.
5. Take the glitter pipe cleaner, cut off two small sections and position these under the snowman sticker to represent its arms.
7. Allow time for the snowman paper plate to dry.
8. Meanwhile take the second paper plate and cut out its middle. Decorate the white side of the plate using Bostik Rainbow Glitter Glu Pens.
9. Use the Single Hole Punch to create several circles from the white card. This will be used as snow inside the Paper Plate Snowglobe.
10. Add Bostik White Glu around the edge of the snowman paper plate. Place the Snowflake Cellophane on top and cut away any excess cellophane. Add another layer of Bostik White Glu on top.
11. Place the glitter glue plate on top of the glue and push the two plates together. I had thought I would need to use the stapler to secure the plates together but this was not required.
Adam loves to shake his Paper Plate Snowglobe in order to move the snow around. The hole punch circles make brilliant snow. There is certainly no fear of Adam breaking this snowglobe!
