The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.

  1. Die-cut a stack of Snowglobe shapes using copy or construction paper.
  2. Die-cut one Snowglobe using chipboard for the bottom of the notepad (Figure A).
  3. Die-cut a blue Snowglobe using construction paper. Cut away the middle of the Snowglobe on the perforation lines.
  4. Adhere the blue trimmed Snowglobe middle to a Snowglobe. Attach a deer, snowman or tree, decorate with crayons or markers and add details. You can use patterned paper for the tree, if desired.
  5. Students can also draw their own design in the center of the Snowglobe.
  6. Align the stack of Snowglobes with the decorated one on the top and the chipboard Snowglobe on the bottom.
  7. Use binder clips to hold the Snowglobes together, along the sides, near the bottom (Figure B).
  8. Apply the padding compound (available at a stationery or office supply store or online) evenly with a small paint brush to the bottom, following directions on the package. (The notepad functions best if the padded area is more straight than curvy.) 
  9. Allow to dry, and reapply one or two more times. The padding compound can be spread out while still wet and dries clear (Main Photo).
  10. Students can discuss seasons and the weather (Figure C).
  11. Almost any die-cut can be transformed into a unique and special notepad.
