Thanksgiving Wine Glass Markers

Sweden does not celebrate Thanksgiving Day but with Glory Days digital kit by Tempusfigit, I was inspired to create wine glass markers useful for a family Thanksgiving gathering. Each wine glass is adorned with symbolic charm that is significant to what we all should be thankful for. 


Supplies Needed:
Digital Kit Glory Days by Tempusfugit
Shrink Film
Marvy Brush Marker – black
Just Rite Stamps

Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads – Spiced Marmalade, Frayed Burlap, Tattered Rose
EK Success Scalloped Scallop Edge Punch
Color Box Pigment Ink – bronze
Royal Coat Dimensional Magic
Cardstock (left-over)
Charms (assorted)

  1. Open your editing software and choose the elements from the kit that you want to use and print on a sheet of shrink film, let dry.
  2. Cut each element not forgetting to punch holes on each.
  3. Set the oven according to the shrink film’s instruction as stated on the package.
  4. Let cool after “baking”.
  5. Stamp sentiments on distressed paper and cut according to the size of your preference.
  6. Punch the cardstock, adhere the sentiments, and cut.
  7. Apply dimensional magic on each sentiment and let dry at least 3 hours.
  8. Assemble the wine rings.
