Prettie Wednesday

It's that time again! Two weeks ago, Julie Campbell issued a challenge for the Paper Pretties Design Team to make a monogram gift for your fellow Prettie Girl. I'm supposed to make something for Joanne Basile. I thought and thought about something different to send, rather than a card set. I came up with wine glass charms. They didn't exactly turn out how I envisioned. . .sorry Joanne! I won't be offended if you don't ever use them! :) The shrink plastic never "shrinks" in the perfect shape, and the flowers didn't turn out as pretty as I had hoped. Instead of using Joanne's first name for the monogram, I used her last name since I thought the wine glasses would be for the "Family of Basile"! LOL I can't wait to check out what the other Prettie Girls(Alli, Christie, Jillian, Joanne, Julie C., Julie M., and Kristine) have come up with! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Heartfelt Thanks, Letterpress Alphabet (Stampin' Up); Ink- StazOn Jet Black; Accessories- jump rings, shrink plastic, beads, hole punch, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant, Ballet Blue and Bravo Burgundy markers (Stampin' Up).

I think these turned out wonderful! I know it's frustrating when something doesn't come out just how you envisioned it. But I just tell myself, "It's handmade" that's how it's suppose to be! I might have to dig out my poly-shrink and try soemthing like this! TFS!!!

What a nice idea rather than a paper product !! Shrink plastic has a mind of its own I think.
I am sure she will love them...

These are soooo cool Charmaine! What a great idea! Unfortunately I have not come up with the "perfect" idea yet . . so no monograms from me today! :) Great job!

This is fabulous Charmaine. I'm glad it's not just me with the plastic not shrinking right. I've been working on a set of wine glass charms for a friend and have been so frustrated that I couldn't get a perfect circle.

What a fabulous gift idea!!! I think they turned out GREAT!

I like your wine glass charm- the monogram was a good idea. I have had my best results with shrink when I shrink it in my oven and not with my heat gun.

Alli Miles said...

These are wonderful! You are so creative.

This is SUCH a great idea! I simply love it! I should have remembered you had me and not popped on over here, but oh goodie! I'm so glad I did. I'm loving them!
