Monogrammed wedding gift

There is a really sweet girl at my work that will be getting married next month.I wanted to make something for her that is meaningful and pretty.

I found instructions for splitting a letter in Scal 2 from Denise at Paper Pastime. It was tedious and a little frustrating to weed the teeny tiny pieces of vinyl out.  But it’s done and it’s beautiful.

I bought the frame at Ikea. The mat opening was the perfect size for a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock.


Here is a close up


If you are interested in purchasing the svg files for each letter of the alphabet, Denise has done all of the work for you and the price is phenomenal. Visit Paper Pastime for the details.
