Crafty Post! – Kitty in Boots Snow Globe

I have to say at the outset im hopeless at crafts, I don’t think that side of my brain works! I’m an accountant – im a numbers girl!  However I did accept a challenge of creating a Kitty in Boots snow globe!

The Tale of Kitty in Boots is a book written by well known author Beatrix Potter and illustrated by equally well known illustrator Quentin  Blake. The book chronicles the tales of a well behaved young black cat who leads a double life defeating the evil villains.

See link here for super simple easy to follow instructions including a handy video tutorial.

 

In summary you need:

  • A jam jar
  • Some fake snow or glitter
  • A little Christmas tree decoration
  • Glycerine
  • Water resistant glue or a glue gun
  • The cutout image of Kitty
  • Cardboard
  • A laminator with laminating pouches, or clear packing tape as an alternative
  • Scissors

Tips from somebody who is totally non crafty!

  • We used glitter but the snow would make it much more festive
  • We didn’t have a laminator so used some waterproof clear tape my husband had in the shed (!)
  • Its honestly super simple so give it a go and I would love to see some pics if you do try it, you never know I might even pop a copy of the book in the post for the best ones!!!

The Tale of Kitty in Boots is available from Ladybird Books
