Using a laptop/Mac/iPad/iPhone, log on to your Design Space™ account and make sure you are connected to your Explore™ / Maker™ machine. Open a new project. In images, search for ‘House box’ and select the below project.
Drag a box over the entire image and re-size the project to 7.8cm wide in the ‘Edit’ menu, the image will then proportionately size itself to 10.7cm in height.
Ungroup the image; to do this select ‘Ungroup’ from the ‘Actions’ menu from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. Once complete select the top half of the image by clicking on it then select detach from the ‘Actions’ menu.
Select the main red body of the image once more and select ‘Hide Contour’ from the ‘Actions’ menu.
The below box will then pop up. Select the gum-drop door shape from the image so that it becomes greyed out. To exit this pop-up, click onto the canvas.
Drag a box over the top half of the image so that both the main body of the house and the score line/s are selected. Select ‘Attach’ from the ‘Actions’ menu.
Select the bottom half of the image and select ‘Duplicate’ from the ‘Actions’ menu.
Detach the middle image section, then repeat steps five to six, this time hiding the roof section in the ‘Hide Contour’ menu. You will also need to select the corresponding score line on the roof, to do this you’ll need to click back onto the canvas and select the score lines layer and then go back into the ‘Hide Contour’ tool.
Repeat the same process for the bottom image section, this time hiding the main body of the house leaving just the roof, making sure to reattach the score line once finished.
Select the roof section, and open up the layers menu. Click the arrow to the right of the image and change the colour of the roof to a dark brown; this will ensure this part of the design cuts from a different colour of cardstock.
Assemble the house using a glue pen. To secure the house to the base of the snow globe add foam pads to the underside. Secure two mini bottle brush trees in the same way, if you would like you trees to be different heights, simply use a pair of wire cutters to trim away the base.
Add a tablespoon of faux snow into the globe, and then push the base into the bottom.
To complete the snow globe, secure the lid in place and run a strip of double-sided tape around the edge. Adhere a length of jute ribbon along with a bow. This could also be done use a hot melt glue gun.
