I found some shrinky dink at the art store and did some test charms.  I love them!  I just stamped them, used my circle punch, in the oven for two mins.  So easy!!! In the picture you can see how much they shrank.  Now I need to find the other pieces to make them wine charms.

Very cool!  What size did you make them originally and what are they shrunken down?  The dog tag example was 3 inches to 1.25 inches but I thought that might be too big for wine glasses.

It was about an inch and 3/4 and now it is just 3/4.  I'd say it's a great size.

I'm finally getting caught up on wedding stuff after a very hectic holiday season.  I bought the shrinky dink printer paper and LOVE it.  I forgot how fun they can be!  Here are the new charms - they look similar but are much sturdier - what a perfect idea.  I also decided to make some keychains for the OOT bags (didn't like any in the gift shops during my site visit).  Still have lots more to do, but need to wait for RSVPs for the rest.

This is such a fabulous idea! For those of you considering using these personalized wine charms as favors or escort cards, are you worried that guests might forget to take the charm off their glass at the end of the night?

I also had great success with shrinky dinks. Our wine charms were so so easy to make and I'm thrilled with how they turned out. I'm thinking of making them for our AHR too!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
