Wine Tags

I've had this idea for a while now but needed to get some special jewelery making tools.  I have a friend who loves throwing big parties and the wine glasses getting mixed up is always a bit of a confusion.  This way we'll always know whose is whose!  I think I'll make her several sets.  Thankfully the Heartfelt Creations set that this ornament came with also has several different shaped ornaments that I can play with.  I also have a set of snowflake medallions that would work just as perfectly.

These tags are also part of my Heartfelt Creations design team application.  Wish me luck!   I've added my instructions below in case you are interested in trying this out.


HCPC 3337 Fancy Ornament Precut Set

Silver jewelery findings

Silver jewellery chain (2 inches of chain per charm)

Shrinky Dinks Shrinkable Plastic for computer inkjet printers

Stazon Ink

Copic markers

Special Tools:

Wire cutters

Needle nose pliers (2 pairs)



Stamp the ornament with Stazon ink onto the Shrinky Dink plastic.  (Please note:  Other types of ink will smear.)  Cut out the image.  Turn the image wrong side up and colour with your copics on the BACK of the image.  (Using copics with Stazon will damage your nibs.)  The lines are easily visible in good light.  Stamp the same ornament image on top of your colouring.  Punch a hole in the top of the image for the chain.  Place on a clean cookie tray and bake in the oven at 275 °F (135 °C) for 5 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool.  Attach a silver finding (a circle of silver) through the loop of your ornament charm.  Loop the desired length of chain through the charm’s finding.  Attach the clasp at one end of the chain and a finding at the other.  Your wine charm is now ready to be attached to a wine glass.
