Wine Charms..The Finished Product!

I started last week trying different fonts and sizes and printing out samples to match the size to the Scrabble Tiles.  Once I had decided on one that I liked I printed them on 2 different kinds of paper to see which I liked better.  Turns out I used some off of each one!

Under the Winery Name I wrote
Fine Wine
Fond Memories
est 1984

After hubby drilled all the holes I used some small eye hooks and screwed them into the holes using some E6000

I then used some Microglaze to seal the printing and cut out each label for each tile.  Once they were all cut out I used some regular school glue sticks
to adhere each one to each tile.  I let these sit for a an hour or so and then sealed all of them using Judikins Diamond Glaze.

This was all left overnight to be sure the glue had adhered well and that the Glaze was set as well.

Friday morning I sat with my beads and findings all over the place and proceeded to make each one different and unique.  Here are the finished gifts that were loved by the recipients!

I had fun making them and I hope they will spend many hours around the stems of glasses so that more memories can be made!
