Monogram Ornament Gifts

How are we all doing with our Christmas preparations?

I'm pretty much ready... I think. Hee hee!

I've been working on some last minute gifts for family and friends (isn't it funny how that list keeps growing? Not that I'm complaining, by the way)

I thought I'd share a last minute ornament gift that I've been working on.

Monogram Ornaments!



I started with a 3" x 5" piece of 1/4" mdf, some of my fav scrapbook paper, monograms cut out with my new Calligraphy Cricut cartridge in the Matrimony font.



I Mod Podged the scrapbook paper onto the mdf. Once that was thoroughly dry, I added the monogram and a few more coats of Mod Podge (allowing each coat to thoroughly dry before I added another coat)

Once everything was nice and dry, I used some sandpaper to file off the excess paper and make the edges nice and smooth.



I finished each ornament off with some bling (sorry you can't really see that in the pics), and a black ribbon for hanging.

As you can see, I've been real busy with these. Hee hee!


I'm linking up to Kimba's DIY Day... head over and check it out!
