    I used double-sided colored paper that I had embossed in a Cuttlebug and it looks great, however it will not stay on the wine glass. Where did I go wrong? Please tell me what magnification you used for printing a template? Thanks!

    Love this project! I made lots of these to label the buffet dishes. I used a copier to resize the template so I had 4 different sizes. The smallest are about 11/2"; I had to simplify the template's curvy lines to make these work. I found that scrapbook paper is plenty thick, just make sure to score lightly before folding. I used plain-color 2-sided paper, and stamped one side with coordinating ink. They turned out really pretty!
