    I got them 50% off last year in November at hobby lobby. They had a huge selection of styles too.

      I got the heart ones on sale at Michaels last year. There were lots of different styles there, but make sure you get what you need as once they are gone from the christmas stock, they don't get more.

      I was thinking of getting some little bottles to put sand in, but then my Mom saw the orniments at Michaels, and I loved them. The first pic posted with the heart shaped one is what I am handing out.

        Thank you! I could not remember where I got the first picture from.

        What time of the year did you find them on sale at Michaels? Carla

          They are at Michaels right now actually.

          Dumb question, because they are such a fine glass, how did you ladies pack them in your suitcases? Plus, I'm planning on putting them in my OOT bags, so would it be one ornament per couple or per person? I'm guessing per person.

              We are going to do them per person so that each person can fill them with whatever they like.

                  We are doing each person as they are the favor for the wedding. The package they come in works well to protect them. I am leaving them in the packaging and putting them in my carry-on.

                    I will be transporting them down in their original containers since the will take up less room. I am going to use clear boxes which will come flat and I can assemble there and added filler to. If we have room I would much rather package them ahead of time in the clear boxes...

                      Good idea. Where did you get the clear boxes from?

                      Well, the ornaments got veto'd out. Instead, I'm going to use baby food containers that I'll dress up with ribbon, shells, and starfish. I guess they will travel a little bit better too, because I'm breaking out at the rafters will all the crap I'm hauling down.
