Ring Around the Cocktail

Put last year's holiday cards to good use as this year's cocktail markers. Use scissors to cut circular shapes from cards, concentrating on areas with lots of color or an attractive design element, then cut a small hole in the middle for the glass's stem and a slit so guests can easily slide the markers on and off. Vary the markers' colors and patterns so guests can easily tell which glass is theirs.
