New Wine Glass Charms

These are the wine glass charms that I made recently for a Hen party. They were for a pink themed afternoon tea party. They were used as the place settings and looked lovely with pink and ivory balloons and favors on the table

I was also busy towards the end of the school year making 'special teacher' wine glass charms. They look great as they are in their organza bags or hung on a miniature bottle of wine

As always, all the wine glass charms can be tailored to meet your specific needs and theme. Check out my Wine Glass Charm page over at the Ribbon Girl or send me an email through their 'contact us' page to discuss your requirements, Andrea xx

Wine Glass Charms ...

As well as making cards and paper crafted items I also love to make wine glass charms. I can make them for all sorts of occasions and events, some are personalised, some have a colour theme or are linked to a special event.  I was asked to make these sets last week. The Jessica charm is how my standard personalised wine glass charm is packaged. It comes with it's on personalised stamped tag in a pretty organza drawstring bag. The sets for Dawn and Amie were a special request for sets of 4 coordinating charms. My charms are for sale at The Ribbon Girl, they have their own section or get in touch via the contact us page
