Went to a party and saw my first set of wine glass coaster/markers. They were square, and boring. And the store at which they were bought had exactly ONE kind (a set of four). My friend bought two sets, then invited five couples over.

You guessed it. We couldn't tell whose was whose, so I promised her it would be a piece of cake to make some for our next gathering.

Then I set out to make it hard to do.  Roll Eyes

I decided on LIPS for our movie night this weekend, it being close to Valentine's day and all.

Rev 1 didn't have enough shape, and I didn't like the free-motion "highlights."




Rev 2:



For other variations (I need to make TEN that don't duplicate!), I have thought of:
a) using different fabrics
b) trying to add a mustache somehow, for guys (maybe substituting most of the top lip for a 'stache?)
c) adding vampire teeth
d) maybe slightly different shapes?

Anybody got any other ideas?!!! HELP!!!

Cute idea!
I can totally see using some faux fur for different styles of mustaches!
For the ones without mustaches, you could have one that has a lip ring. One could have a tongue sticking out. Another one could maybe have a lizard tongue....

Super cute design!!
Well since they do open up a bit, perhaps you can add some color to the insides? Like Black, dark-red, red, pink and more. That way you dont need to change the the design, if thats not what you want  Tongue
Thought it might not be enough to tell them apart :/

I literally jumped when I saw "faux fur" for the mustaches. I had been throwing around ideas...that one sounds perfect! Cheesy

LOVE the lip ring idea (one of our group is a university dean...heheheh)!!!

A flat (appliqued?) tongue might work, sort of like the rolling stones logo?

Thank you!! (*off to scrounge for bits of stuff to work with!*)
