Spring Snow Globe Mini Album Tutorial

Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's a new shaker mini album I created with the DIY Snow Globe Kit and the beautiful Hello Again Collection. I'm a mini album girl and can usually find a way to turn anything into a little scrapbook and fill it with photos. Any size, any shape, any theme - I got you! So, when I saw the adorable Snow Globe Kit my brain immediately thought of this ...

It's a snow globe shaped holder with a round, removable mini album inside! Oh, how I love Doodlebug. They have so many cute supplies that inspire fun projects. 

And speaking of fun ... I started by decorating the outside of the snow globe. I used flowers from the Bits & Pieces, some gold enamel heart sprinkles, the 6x6 aqua Forever Flowers print, and the gold title sticker from the This & That sheet.

I designed the album's cover to be a shaker and filled it with the cutest little Spring Flowers from the Bunny Hop Collection. The colors of those flowers are so pretty!

The album's pages were
created in an accordion style, so ... there are no rings or binding clips that would prevent it from fitting inside the snow globe.

I love the Hello Again Collection and thought it was perfect for this spring mini. I used the 12x12 Pink Poppies print on the rim and inside the shaker, the 12x12 Spot of Spring (Bunny Hop Collection) and the Green Thumb paper. Then embellished with some mini icon stickers and two little trees from the puffy shapes.

Let's take a quick look inside the mini, then I'll walk you through the steps of how I made this project.

I covered all the white card stock pages with 12x12 pattern papers, except for the one pink page above where I used a 6x6 sheet of the Pink Poppies. I also added the cute vase of flowers from the icon stickers.

To make the photo mats, I used a 3" scallop circle punch and a 2.5" circle punch. On this page, I chose the pretty Patchwork Plaid for the mat and added a butterfly icon sticker.

This cute little rainbow icon sticker has a pretty gold foil scalloped edge that I just adore, but ... it also mimics the scallops and the shape of my photo mat!

Time for the tutorial ...

1. Using my Silhouette Cameo 5 machine and card stock, I cut out the following:

  • 1 pattern ring (4.25”)
  • 6 white rings (4.25”)
  • 10 white circles (4.25”)
  • 10 pattern circles (4”)

2. I stacked and glued the 6 white rings together to provide dimension for the shakers. Then, I glued a 4.25” acetate circle (that I cut out by hand) to one side.  

3. I added .25” foam squares around the edge of the paper side of the rings and set that aside.

4. For the pages, I adhered the pattern circles to the white circles. I laid 5 of them out side-by-side, glued a long piece of ribbon across them, and glued the remaining 5 circle sets on top (white circles facing in & sandwiching the ribbon). Trim off the excess ribbon on either end.

5. On the front side of the first page, I created the scene with mini icon stickers. I sprinkled on some cute spring flower shakers and adhered the acetate frame (from step 3) on top to create the cover.

Slip the cute mini inside the
Snow Globe, replace the backing that comes with it, and voila!! My spring album project is done. I can't wait to add some spring photos to this little album. 

I hope today's project with the DIY Snow Globe Kit and the Hello Again Collection inspires something wonderful! Until next time ... happy crafting 😊
