Ursöta glasdroppar med budskap

De här blev jag helt förälskad i när jag såg dem!! Om ni ser såna på mitt -- vårt -- bröllop så kan ni återigen veta att jag snott idén.

Sprinkled on guests tables and around the reception, these customized “message marbles” are perfect little take aways for guests

Flat clear marbles about 1 inch round (I found some at Target)
Computer with Word or InDesign (I found InDesign worked well)
Different colored paper (if desired)
1-inch hole puncher
Decoupage glue
Poly Brush
Step 1: Format and design what you want the marbles to say or look like. Make rows of circular templates with images or words. My flat marbles were about 1 inch round so I made the templates a little smaller. I chose to use different wedding related words with a nice border, but you could use your imagination for the designs.
Step 2: Print the template on your printer at home. I used different color paper and ink in my wedding colors. If you are using an ink jet printer, make sure to let the ink dry for a couple of hours.
Step 3: Use a large hole puncher to punch out each design.
Step 4: Using decoupage glue and a poly-brush (regular brushes tended to have hairs come off onto the paper) brush the printed side of the cut out designs.
Step 5: Gently but firmly press the flat side of the marble onto the glue side of the paper. The image will show through the glass.
Step 6: Let dry.
Step 7: Brush decoupage glue on the back of the marble (the paper side that is exposed) to seal the marbles and protect the paper.
Step 8: Let dry.
Step 9: Repeat step 7, for a final coat.
