Christmas Decoration

This is Recycling!
I've made a christmas decoration out of an empty taperoller, the figure is from a broken snowglobe (I dusted it off too hard - YES, REALLY! - LOL).
I thought the lovely couple inside were too cute to throw in the bin, so with fear of cutting my fingers badly, I picked the figure loose - and didn't know what to do with it for almost a year, before this idea popped up...
The doublesided taperolls are always left with one layer of tape that's impossible to get loose orget any use of, so I simply left it on the roll, and attached a DP to it.
Then I cut some Spellbindersdiecuts and glued them onto the roll.
Inside the decoration I "painted" snow (Aleene's True Snow), before I glued down the couple.
I used a lot of snowflakes, halfbeads and chrystalstones.
I used a white sheer ribbon for the bow, and tied a snowflakecharm onto it.

In the next picture it's easier to see the depth of it.
...and here's the backside, same decorating.
The stamp is from an old stampset from Scrappers Choice.

I hope they'll like my christmasdecoration in these challenges:

Card and Scrap - Lag noe som IKKE er firkantet (Make something NOT square)
Jingle belles - A Caroling We Will Go (Let it snow - Dean Martins version!)
Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge - Baubles or anything hanging (not sure they'll accept it, as it isn't a card, but I'll try anyway... :)
