Mini Project Monday: Photo Monogram

I love the $1.50 bins at Michaels.  Honestly, I’ve even gone into the store with the sole intention of shopping from the $1.50 bins.

Whenever I see any type of monogram product, I always dig through and find if they have any “A’s”…and if they do, it automatically goes in the shopping basket, whether I need it or not!

Today’s mini project combines my love of monograms with some leftover wedding prints.  I’d wanted to do an A monogram with a copy of our marriage license “mod-podged” on but it wasn’t going to work the way I wanted so I went with photos instead.

It was pretty simple but takes time to let the Mod Podge dry in between coats.  I applied the pictures to the chipboard monogram (making sure not to cut off anyone’s face!) and after it had dried, I cut the excess photo paper from the back side with a utility knife.

After that, it was just a matter of applying thin coats of Mod Podge until I was satisfied that the photos weren’t going to peel up at some time in the future (I quit after two coats since this is, after all, a mini project!)!

  1. Wow, that is super cute. I actually have some letters… maybe this needs to be next on my list. Thanks for the idea! I haven’t ever done anything fun with my wedding photos. I definitely need to. :o)
