Hi everyone!  Hope you’re having a great week.  Tisa Jackson here from Just My Little Mess, I’m back to share a cute holiday project with you using gift cards.  Whaaaaa?!?!? Yes!   I know, you can design your own Starbucks gift cards.


Create Your Own Starbucks Gift Card

A Simple Personalized Holiday Gift Using the Cricut Explore Air

Starbucks actually thought of this amazing idea, and I knew I had to jump at the chance to create something amazing.  I just saw this little package and all I could see were three small canvases with limitless possibilities!   Now, put down your coffee mugs, you only needed a few supplies to get started.

– Starbucks gift cards

Personal cutting machine

– Vinyl

– Glue pin

– Rhinestones

– 2 inch circle paper punch

– Glitter cardstock

gift-card-1I created three different gift cards.

Merry Christmas Gift Card:  I used my personalized cutting machine.  Designed the words Merry Christmas using a couple of my favorite fonts and cut it out on red glittered vinyl.  Simply apply to the card using transfer tape.

Rhinestone Gift Card:  I grabbed rhinestones I had in my supplies.  Using a glue pen as well as a pick me up pin, simply apply the rhinestones and let dry.  PLEASE NOTE:  You should NOT apply rhinestones to the near the bottom of the gift card, this is prevent your card from being swiped.

Ornament Gift Card:  This package comes with the cutest mini Sharpie and I knew I wanted to use it in some way.  I used a 2 inch circle punch and punched out a piece of card stock.  I drew the top of the ornament using the enclosed sharpie and simply applied the card stock to the card using scrapbook adhesive.


Create these gift cards in under 10 minutes for and to give to everyone on your list. I’m going back to Starbucks to stock up on these cards.  Let your imagination run.  Give everyone on your list a creative cup of coffee this holiday season.

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
