DIY Photo Glitter Globes – A Beautiful Mess

In the event you thought I favored picture tasks earlier than I had a child, properly, consider it or not … I’m EVEN MORE INTO IT NOW. Lol.

I’m working with Canon USA to share this DIY picture glitter globe undertaking. I used the Canon IVY mini printer, which is a small moveable printer you need to use to print photographs out of your cellphone (utilizing the Canon mini print app).

I really like this little printer. It’s tremendous straightforward to make use of and the prints are stickers! You may also use the app so as to add design parts like frames or stickers.

What are glitter globes? Mainly, these are mini snow globes however the glitter and colours I select don’t really feel “wintery,” so I felt they deserved one other title. You may add any photographs to those—I selected black and white photographs of my son.

And these picture glitter globes are enjoyable to make for your self or as a present for Mom’s Day or Father’s Day (or a vacation).

I’ll share step-by-step photographs of how I made these, however I created this video tutorial too:

You may customise these plenty of alternative ways! I made mine colourful by including a drop or two of meals coloring, however you can additionally select to depart the water plain and use totally different coloured glitter for a special look.


Step One: Print your photographs. Every picture globe had a back and front, so it may have two photographs in every (or two of the identical picture, should you needed).

I used the black and white filter within the Canon mini print app to edit among the photographs I had on my cellphone and printed them out on the ZINK paper.

Step Two: Peel and stick the photographs to the interior cardboard (that got here with the globes). Then, use scissors to trim them to suit into the globes.

Step Three: Fill the globes. First, I added the glitter. Then I combined 1/2 to three/4 cup water with one drop of meals coloring and a cap full (most likely about 1 teaspoon) of glycerin.

The glycerin helps to maintain the glitter from clumping collectively.

These turned out actually cute, IMO. I at the moment have one sitting on my workplace desk proper by my pc as I sort this. The opposite two are supposed to be items for my mom and mother-in-law. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
