Test Tube Gift Card Holders

I can't believe that I'm getting a head start on a couple of Christmas gift card holders and it isn't even Halloween! I bought these test tube kits from Gretchen Barron a while back and have had such a good time playing with them. She has the cutest little cork toppers on her test tubes!

I used the big Snowflake die-cut and the Santa from Jolly Old St. Nick for this Christmas one and I found some of those old fashioned candies for the tubes at Cost Plus World Market.

For the fall ones, I used the Autumn Harvest stamp set and candy corn in the tubes. These were so quick and easy to make, I just loved doing them...but mostly I love having some done and on hand to give!!
If you would like to make some for yourself, hop on over to Gretchen's blog HERE.


  1. These are adorable! Love them!
    Are those the plastic or glass text tubes with the cork tops? I bought some a while back, 100 of them to be exact and I can't decide on how to use them as I didn't like them once I saw them. They are plastic but not clear, they look milky in color and they have the cork tops. Any suggestions?? Thanks for sharing as always, your projects are so awesome!! :)

  2. My question is: when you have these made up ahead of time, how do you keep from snitching the yummmy candy out before you can give them away? lol.

  3. Hi Becky,

    Love what you did with the Test Tube Holder for the Holidays!!!

  4. Hi Becky, I'm a big fan of you!!! I really love all the stuff you do. All are so awesome, beautiful, creative, original.

    Where did you get the test tube? My husband is a 8th grade science teacher and I was looking for the test tube in his classroom, LOL!!! but those are soooo diferent than the one you are showing on your post. The test tube he has is with white lines, and too big and no cork tops.

    Please can you send me the link where did you buy it.

    I really appreciate it!
    Have a wonderful day!

  5. What a wonderful idea to use those test tubes not just for Halloween but for all the holidays!! Now, I NEED to know where you got a gift card that says STAMPIN UP on it??!!

  6. Becky, How freakin adorable are these?! I purchased Gretchen's kit a couple of weeks ago and love what both of you have come up with! I know what I'm working on this weekend!!

    Fabulous work as always!


  7. DARLING!! I am using so many of my tubes up, I am going to have to order MORE! These are so cute, the possibilities are endless with these!
