    So somehow I came up with a great idea to make DIY wine charms for the wedding OOT bags. I bought the charms off ebay and the swavarski crystals off ebay as well. I bought the wine charm metal loops from a local bead store. I made the starfish in Adobe InDesign and put our information on it. I hope you enjoy!

                      They were pretty easy to make. I think I spent more time trying to match the fish/starfish/crab beads to the crystal colors. Then the FI and I made up way too many color combinations. They ended up costing a little more than I planned but I think it was well worth it. I think it was around $10 per set of 6 charms (including the bag and tag). I used a vellum paper for the starfish tag so that it would be thicker and not bend as easily. I found after trying 3 different printers that the toner would just rub off. So, I used the laminate machine at work to keep everything in one place.
                      Oh, and I was wrong about where I bought the beads. I got them from shipwreckbeads.com. Sorry!
