Martini Glass Charms

This is Jennifer Ingle with you today and I am going to show you how to create some super fun martini glass charms!

  1.  To begin, cut 1 ¼” circles from white paper using your die cut machine.  (You can use punches or other means if you have them.)

  1.  Cut 1 ½” circles from the creamy cardstock in the color of your choice.

  1.  Stamp sentiments and images onto the white circles.  I chose to do four sentiments and four coordinating images so I could pair them on the glasses.

  1.  Adhere the white circles to the red circles.

  1.  Punch a hole at the top of each circle, add jump ring.  Tie a length of elastic string to each jump ring.  Make sure these are large enough to stretch over the bottom of the glasses you intend to use them on, but small enough so they don’t easily slip off the glass.

  1.  Tie a colored bow on each jump ring to accent each charm.  Add a bit of color to each image with markers.

  1.  Slip two coordinating charms over the stem of each glass and there you have it!  A fun, and interesting set of handmade martini charms!  If you plan to use them more than once, I suggest laminating them after they are colored.

These also make fun little take home favors for your guests or even a great way to add something fun and handmade to a wedding table or GNO activity!

Go make something fabulous!

    what a neat idea!  thank you for sharing.

    These would make a great gift for friends who actually drink martinis (or wine).  I suppose I could always drink my lemonade or water or coffee in a stemmed glass.  They really are cute — and so easy and inexpensive.

  24. Charlotte Zweigoron

    In most cases, the strongest thing I drink is coffee!!  However, I do have stemmed glasses for my everyday glassware so this would work for me.  It is such a cute idea and so simple!!  I could make these for card club or any occasion where we have extra folks around.  Others I've seen were just too expensive…  these would be personal and inexpensive!!  TFS!!
