Create a unique Halloween card this season with this free printable and tutorial! Spin the top of the snow globe card to watch the witch fly through the sky.
Good morning! I am very excited to share my Halloween Snow Globe card with you today and kick off this year’s Halloween craft projects. It is one of those projects that turned out exactly as I’d imagined it – I love it when that happens! This card features a clear plastic layer which can be rotated – making the witch fly around.
The card is made to stand up, which is great for displaying. The inside of the card features a little Halloween rhyme; “When witches go riding and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, tis near Halloween”. Below is the tutorial and the free printable to create your own! Make up a few and send a little Halloween spookiness in the mail this year! You can also see the card in action in this short video!
DIY Halloween Snow Globe Card
- Free printable – Link located at the end of this post.
- Little flying witch:
- I used “Flying witch on a broom free icon” from Freepik.com
- You could also use a small sticker or draw your own
- Cricut Design Space has LOTS of flying witch options that would be perfect for this card!
- White cardstock to print on. I use 110lb Bright White Card Stock
- A7 envelopes – for 5″x7″ cards
- Clear Craft Plastic. I used Grafix Clear Craft Plastic
- Brads – I used the copper brads that came in the Elements Metallic Brad Pack
- Glue stick, tape runner and 1/4″ Scor-Tape
- X-Acto knife and matte board
- *Optional* – Scoring Board and stylus
- *Optional* – circle cutter
Step One: Print and cut out all pieces.
First, print the snow globe card, the link is located at the end of this post. I printed on 110lb bright white card stock. Cut each piece out including a tiny witch if you are printing or drawing your own. I made several cards using a different little witch almost every time. The more detailed ones were definitely harder to cut out. Use an X-Acto knife to carefully cut the tiny witch out or use a sticker!
If you have a cutting machine, you can use that to cut out a tiny flying witch. I found so many great flying witches in Cricut Design Space.
You will also need to cut out a piece of clear plastic that is the same size as the globe. I used a circle cutter to cut out the globe on the printable, so I used the same setting to cut a circle from the plastic. This was nice because I knew both pieces would be the exact same size. You could use a scissors, though, and just use the printable globe as a pattern piece for the clear plastic.
Step Two: Create the snow globe.
Layer the clear plastic circle on top of the printable globe and poke a hole through the center of both. The printable has a small dot to indicate the center. I used the sharp end of a stylus to poke the hole.
Connect the two layers with a brad. The copper brads in the Elements Metallic Brad Set perfectly matched the orange background of the printable. I had these on hand so it worked out really well. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find a package of just the copper brads, so if you do purchase the Metallic Brad Set I link to at the bottom of this post, you will get other colors as well.
Step Three: Assemble the bottom of the card.
It’s time to create the bottom of the card, the snow globe stand! First score along the fold line and then use a tape runner to attach the black piece on top that says “Happy Halloween”.
Step Four: Attach the globe to the bottom stand.
Attach the globe to the folded stand using a tape runner or glue stick. Glue the witch to the plastic layer with the glue stick. I positioned her so she would fly through the middle of the moon :) The card is finished!!
I love the finished card! I’ll be sending a few of these out and keeping one for myself to display with our Halloween decorations! I have a few more fun Halloween projects coming this month, including a new DIY Treat Bag with a free printable pattern. Yay Halloween :)
