This week I have a fun gift idea for you.  I am sure that you, just like me, probably have a growing list of people that you would like to give a little something-something to and are looking for ways to stretch your gift giving budget.  Instead of 'just' a bottle of wine how about a whole matching gift ensemble that will take you less than a morning to make.  My set includes 4 glass coasters, 4 glass charms, and a tag for that special bottle of Merlot.



{Supplies}

White and Black Cardstock
Floss, gems, chalk, wine charm rings



{How To}
Coaster: Stamp your snowman family image four times on white cardstock. Color with Copic markers.  Cut out circle shapes using the circle die template.  Mat onto black Lacey circles.  Stitch along the circumference with contrasting colored floss.  Adhere a circle cardstock piece to the back to finish off your coaster.  
Glass charm: Stamp a snowflake image four times on white cardstock. Color each snowflake a different color (this is important because that is how a guest will be able to identify which glass is theirs) or alternatively use different images for each charm. Cut out each charm using the smallest Lacey circle die template.  Embellish with colored gems.  Punch a tiny hole and thread with a metal charm bracelet.

(Tip:  Over the years I received or purchased a number of wine glass charms and have accumulated quite a stash. If you have a few to spare -  take 4 existing charms off of their rings and use those rings to assemble  your new personally handmade charms).

Are you excited to see the rest of teams work? I know I am so here you go..


Once again thanks so much for spending part of your day with me - I appreciate your comments and support.  If you have any questions about what you see please feel free to give me a shout, I will try and answer them here for ya :)


Q&A

Hi Marian, Thanks for that great suggestion!  My husband thought that laminating them would make them last longer too but we don't have a laminator at home.  I am almost sure the Spellbinders die templates will cut through the plastic.  If you do give it a try let me us know what works for you :)

Hugs
Kazan
PS Thanks for all those wonderful b/day wishes from last week!

Kazan,
Just love your ideas. This is a wonderful gift set, but I would love to also make a set like these for my own table setting. I better get started because my guest list just keeps growing. Love the nesties that you paired with the coasters and gift tag. Your snowmen are colored so wonderfully.

NOW YOU CAN PERFORM LIKE A YOUNG LIONONCE AGAIN!

It’s true: we’re all getting older. And while some say age is all in the mind, it does sometimes show

in the body — when you can’t seem to perform the same in the bedroom as you used to. Now there’s

Excel, an all-natural solution to your woes between the sheets.

We’ve carefully blended a proven mix of herbs that will take years off your age, letting you perform

in bed like the young lion you once were. You’ll feel like you’re back in your 20s — or even younger —

after taking Excel for just a few short weeks. And renewed sexual prowess won’t be your only benefit:

you’ll also feel less anxious, more relaxed, and healthier overall, thanks to the bonus properties of

our 100% pesticide-free herbal ingredients. Some of our ingredients, long used as aphrodisiacs around

the world, even intensify the pleasure you feel at your partner’s touch. Imagine all of these benefits

— with no side effects to speak of!

Misoprostol tablet
What is this medicine?

MISOPROSTOL helps to prevent stomach ulcers in patients using nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDS, drugs commonly used for arthritis, inflammation, and pain). Misoprostol reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach and protects the stomach lining from the effects of acid.

Xanax (Alprazolam) is used to treat anxiety disorders and panic attacks. Alprazolam is in a class of

medications called benzodiazepines. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Unlike

other benzodiazepines which must be taken several times a day, Xanax is a once-daily formula, helping

you all day long.
