Hey.....is that your drink or mine?

It is always inevitable! Have a party, and someone puts a drink down, and then someone else does the same. Then the problem arises........"Whose drink is whose????" Problem solved!!! We are having a Father's Day/Birthday celebration tomorrow. I don't want to mess with cups since drinks will be bottled water, Lipton 1/2tea, 1/2 lemonade, and beer! I told Mike I needed to make some tags. He replied, " You don't have time for all that!" HAHA! I sure did have time! All I needed was My Digital Studio and some shrink plastic! I got some ink jet shrink plastic at a local stamp convention this past year. I found it in my stash and went to work! Just pulled up a blank page in MDS (My Digital Studio) added the flower and star images and the names, printed on my printer. I cut down the sheets once printed into a strip as the tag, punched a whole with the 1/2" circle punch, then stuck in the toaster oven (I have an old one I use for this and polymer clay). Once they were cool, I added a large jump ring and a pony tail holder! Now we will all have tags for our bottles tomorrow! Love it!

What a GREAT idea! How big were your strips prior to shrinking them?

The shrink plastic was 8-1/2 x 11 and I got about three to a page. I had to trim them down some, but didn't measure the strips prior to shrinking. My guess is that they were probably about 7" on some and 5" on the smallest.

Love this idea!!! I wish I would have seen it before my niece's 8th birthday party today. We kept losing track of our drinks. I am definitely doing this for the 4th of July party we always have. Thanks for sharing!
