Starbucks cup gift card holder

How was everyone's Christmas?  Hopefully Santa brought everything you wished for.  I know Santa was very generous to me this year.  I got a brand new HP color laser printer for printing out my digis, Copic markers, so much designer paper that I don't know where to put it all, and a new camera!  I'm having a hard time figuring out the bells and whistles of my camera, so I'm using my old one for now (until I can watch some pointers on YouTube!)

Anywho, there was a birthday in all this Christmas hoopla, and I totally forgot about a gift.  Eep!  I went to Starbucks to pick up a gift card and remembered someone posting on their blog that they simply put it in an empty Starbucks cup as a gift card holder.  So I asked for an empty one!  Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.  I wish I remembered where I saw the idea from... I feel really weird posting projects without giving credit.  So if this is your idea, please let me know and I'll edit my post.


Didn't have much time, so I just made a quickie tag and slapped a die cut from the Love you a Latte Cricut cart. 

Can't wait to read about all of your crafty Christmas presents that Santa left!

Like the Star Bucks gift card idea. I also saw it posted on another blog where the person filled the cup with shredded paper but I do not recall whose blog it was on. You commented on my New Year Party Hat. I made it stand up using an easel back of whit4e cardstock. Happy New Year!

What a lovely idea! If I ever give a coffee gift card, I will definitely have to remember this. I'm glad you had a fabulous Christmas! I was also spoiled....really spoiled. Between my parents and my uncle I got an awesome sewing machine, a basics sewing class, a new kindle, and a blue ray player...as well as other stuff. It was crazy! I mailed your card on the 22nd, so I'm hoping you get it some time this week!
