Gift Card Water Globes

Ok....how many of you adore Pinterest? I know I do! Not sure my hubby does since now there seems to always be a new "project".

I have a few on my list that require gift cards....I think anyone over the age of 14 seems to need one and I just was so tired of putting them in an envelope...I wanted something fun to present it with.  So...glittler, water, glue gun and a mason jar? Sounds easy enough eh????

Today a dear friend of mine watched my kiddos for a couple of hours so I could run and do those errands that take no time with no kiddos but take too much time and patience WITH kiddos....so off to Hobby Lobby I went! They had all glass on sale and all Christmas on sale:) YIPPPEEEE!

I got my mason jar with big lids, my gift cards, my unbreakable ornaments and got to work!

Then started gluing them how I wanted them!

Add glitter and some other ornaments that will float around....

I like glitter....so I added a LOT!

add water, screw on lid....presto! You have a very CREATIVE way to present your gift cards.....the glue comes easily off the gift card and the card is obviously fine when they are wet!




  1. So clever Jamie! What a great gift for a teenager...or anybody for that matter!

  2. Wow! You are a Christmas crafting genius! So glad I found your project via Centsational Girl.

    Please stop by for a visit to my blog. I am currently in the midst of a Gifts to Make series.

    Be Merry and Bright!
