We Found a Fun Way to Wrap a Gift Card!

December 21, 2015

Why give a gift card in a plain old envelope when you can hide it inside a beautiful snow globe made by yours truly? 

Using a few items we had on hand, we made some pretty globes that we’ll be using to present Starbucks Holiday Cards to our loved ones this holiday season. Super easy and quick to replicate, we were inspired by Starbucks’ 48 unique designs which provide something for every taste.

To make a snow globe you’ll need: Mason jars, faux snow, cotton, miniature holiday figures/ornaments and ribbon.

Instructions: Place faux snow in bottom of mason jar. Add cotton, figures and ornaments on top of the snow and place your gift card along with the items. Place the lid on the jar and embellish with ribons and bells.


Fun, right? Not only does gifting a card, like Starbucks’, give your giftee the power to treat themselves all year long, but it also gives them the opportunity to join Starbucks’ great My Starbucks Rewards program. By registering the card your giftee can instantly become a member. This entails them to earn their way to all sorts of goodies including free drinks, food and exclusive offers. We also love being able to use our phone to pay for items. 


Plus, during the holiday season My Starbucks Rewards members will have the chance to win Starbucks for Life. This is the kind of exclusivity we’re talking about!

We’re also giving away these snow globes along with a $50 Starbucks gift card within each one.
