Step 1

Buy a snow globe with the photo frame insert. Search online for snow globes with photo inserts if you can't one at a store.

Step 2

Unscrew or unsnap the bottom from the snow globe. Remove the paper or plastic insert from the domed part of the snow globe.

Step 3

Measure the selected photo using the template taken out of the insert as a guide. Use a pencil to trace the sides that will be cut. Use the scissors to cut the photo to fit.

Insert the photo into the slot within the dome of the snow globe. If the photo insert is double-sided, add another photo on the other side if you desire. Measure the second photo using the template. Cut it out.
