In early May Emma and I created Wine charms for Emma's mom for mothers day. Her are some images of the charms and of the packaging. We used a cricut Expression with cartridge Bags, tags, and boxes for the packaging and we used doodlecharms for the shapes. In the jewelry section of our local craft store we purchased some hoop earrings. We used Grafix paper (AKA Shrinky dink paper) to create the charms. Be sure you use the multi cut function on your cricut when cutting this material.
The grafix paper will dull your cutting blade pretty quickly. I would say you only get about half as many cuts. So if shortly after doing anything will Grafix paper your cricut starts acting funny. ie: tearing the paper, replace your blade.
