Do you find yourself having extra letters in your stash of alphas?
Why not put them to use by monogramming?
I love the idea of personalizing my crafts especially those I make for gift giving, how about you?
Why not combine those two aspects of our craft world and use extra, left over letters to monogram.
You can monogram scrapbook layouts, mini albums, shadow boxes but you can also take cute trinkets, baskets, vases, potting plants, frames, plates and other household items and doctor them up with your left overs.
Check out some of mine below:
I made napkin rings which I monogrammed with the letter of each dinner guest using these black & white chipboard letters I had left over from a set of letters.
Then I monogrammed a little votive holder which I am actually using to place a bunch of chalk inside of to gift along with a desk top chalkboard...the recipient's name is Olivia. I used the "o" as a center for the flower.
Lastly, I monogrammed a little notepad for my youngest daughter. I used some left over plastic, Heidi Swapp letters from an old collection I had hanging around.
I love monogramming!
Now go through your collection of alphabets & see what great things you can personalize & monogram.
I feel like monograms are so personal and add such a special touch to anything. They really say, "hey...I made this with you in mind"! So next time you have a gift to get, think about personalizing it with your left over letters.
Letters come in all sizes, shapes, dimensions and even if you just die cut some out of plain ol' cardstock you could always jazz them up & put Glossy Accents on them to make them stand out.
The name of the game here is...try using your left over letters in clever ways. Monogramming is one of my go to ways.
How about you? Got any ideas for left over letters?
Hope this one sparks many!
Take care & have a great day.
