Card Trick Drink Tags

For game night or anytime you're entertaining a big group – here's a fun and stylish way to mark drinking glasses. With two simple cuts, vintage playing cards can easily slip onto the stem of a glass.

These are great for kids too. When my daughters have their friends over, I must mark their drinks or I would be cleaning a lot of glasses.

Using a 1" hole punch, punch out a hole in the corner of your card.

Make a cut into the card from the edge to the circle.

Slide card onto glass.

    So cute! I would love to throw a themed party (maybe Alice in Wonderland?) and use this idea!

      Jessica, That’s a wonderful idea! I’ve also used old cards to make garland and gift tags as well – you could really go all out with this look. Take Care, Camilla

    Always love to see what unique ideas you come up with.
    The most recent ones are fun and humorous. I particularly
    like the toy animal message trick and the playing cards
    used to identify drinks. Keep up the good work!
    Your creativity is great! Congratulations on a job well done.
    Love ya,
