If you have people on your gift list who are hard to buy for, here is a simple yet creative gift they will all love. I don’t know one person who doesn’t love receiving a gift card but you have to admit it’s a pretty boring gift. I wanted to take it up a level so I came up with these Gift Card Waterless Snow Globes. I’ve created little scenes in jars for waterless snow globes so why not create a little scene with a gift card inside. The best part is that they only take a few minutes to make.
Supplies Needed for Waterless Snow Globes:
Glass jar with lid
If you have food jar lids with writing on them you will probably want to paint them a solid color. I would suggest spray painting the lids. These lids are just white so I don’t have to worry about that, which saves a lot of time.
My jars are 3 1/2″ tall and 2″ wide. I got them at a craft supply sale many years ago so I don’t know where you can purchase them now. All you really need to worry about is the gift card fitting in the jar. You might need to stick a dab of sticky putty on the bottom of the lid to hold the gift card in place.
Unscrew the lid and hold the jar upside down with the lid on the bottom. Add the fake snow to the inside of the lid then place the 2 ornaments on top of the snow. Place the gift card inside the jar then screw the jar and lid together. Shake things around a bit if you don’t like how everything looks inside the jar.
I used mini ornaments for the snow globe but a scene with a deer and tree would be adorable. Add a snowman, or even a few 3D snowflakes. The possibilities are endless! Add a piece of washi tape to the back of the jar or the lid as a gift tag. Simply use a sharpie to write on the washi tape.
These were made as teacher gifts, but they would also be a great gift for co-workers, friends, or you could even slip one in the stocking of your teenager. Teens always appreciate being able to spend a gift card on what they like. Do you have some great ideas on how to give a gift card? I’d love for you to share in the comments!
