    I saw this on pinterest and am planning on doing it for my niece with a b&n and an itunes giftcard, but something kind of odd happened with the itunes giftcard: i had both giftcards in the jar with the lid on to keep it all together before christmas (i hadn’t added the water or anything yet). Yesterday when i happened to look i saw that there was condensation inside the jar. When i took th cards out i saw that the ink from the itunes card had started to run and it had kind of changed colors. The consistency of the card was a little soggy and the inside of the jar smelled a bit rank.

    My closest guess is that apple makes their giftcards out of recycled materials and it was starting to biodegrade inside the jar?? At any rate, i took everything out, let it dry off and wrote down all the numbers off both cards just in case they get ruined after being fully immersed in water. Just wanted to let others know!

    I just made it with Target ones, and it seems to be working well. I did melt the corner of the gift card with the glue gun. oops:)
