I’m back today with another project for my sister’s bridal shower. As young adults, whenever we would have dinner parties at my mom’s house, my sister would run to the printer and print out the guests’ names on strips of paper and tape them around the stem of all the wine glasses. This was of course before there were a gazillion cute wine charms on the market (yes, that is an official number… I’m a math teacher, I should know). Anyway, when I started planning this shower, I knew I would have to create some cute wine charms just for her special occasion. Mine are a bit fancier than paper taped to the bottom of the glass though. 🙂
I had some scraps of paper from my local craft store leftover from another project, which I used to make these wine charms. However, as I describe the project, I will tell you the Stampin’ Up! products that would make perfect substitutions. (I’ve also listed those in the supply list at the bottom of the post.)
For this project, I purchased some 1/2″ Loose Leaf Rings from Amazon.com. They are the perfect size for wine charms, and they open and close so you can easily put them on and switch out the charm for your next occasion.
For each charm I punched one Scallop Oval Punch from Silver Glimmer Paper, and one Modern Label Punch from Silver Foil. I printed the names of all the guests on a sheet of Whisper White card stock and punched them out using the Word Window Punch. (For those who are interested, the font I used is called Centeria Script Demo.) I layered the three punches together with Stampin’ Dimensionals and punched a hole in one end using the 1/4″ Circle Handheld Punch.
Finally, I punched a flower from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I added a rhinestone to the center and added it to the end of my charm with a glue dot. Didn’t this project just turn out to be adorable? I know my sister will love this extra detail at her party. These were really easy to do and the colors could be changed to match any occasion. So next time you are entertaining and want to “WOW” your guests with all the extra little details you put into the event, this project is for you.
I love Pinterest, don’t you? You should pin this project so you can remember it next time you are planning a party. You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list and card stock cuts.
