We have four people in our house: my buddy Conrad, his girlfriend Kayla, and then my husband and I. The funny thing is, we've ALL worked at Starbucks at some point in our lives (some of us still do...*ahem). Anyway, for reasons unknown to anyone but Jeebus, I've been collecting empty Starbucks cards. I just felt so bad about throwing them all out, so I figured I'd come up with something crafty to do with them!

The boys really love their meat products, and since nobody is interested in scrubbing meat grease off of the wall behind the stove I came up with this:

A Starbucks card backsplash! They're stuck to a cardboard background, which would normally concern me (grease-soaked cardboard = gross) except that I made sure that the cards were butted right up against each other.

Oh ha ha! I too have worked at Starbucks, and I too have a pile of empty giftcards (many like yours with those two shot glasses)!

Great use!

This is a great idea, I wish we had starbucks around here, their gift cards are great! I'll be on the hunt now for great looking gift cards as I will be moving into a fixer upper and it will be a while before the downstairs kitchen is completed so I could make the backsplash for the current upstairs kitchen.

This looks so cool!  What a fun idea!  Much better than looking at a plain back splash.  Nice!!
