What You'll Need:
(mine consist of rainbow ColorBurst stripes, painted with a flat brush about 1/16" apart on Strathmore watercolor paper, allowed to dry thoroughly, and then doodled upon with various sizes of Pitt Artist Pens by Faber-Castell)
Scissors and possibly an Xacto Knife
Plain Gift Bag
Type the letter of your choice into a Word document,
size it to fit your watercolor panel (mine is 4x6")
print it out in a light color, reversed, on plain paper.
(I've used a free font called "Storybook")
Tack the printed monogram to the back of your watercolor panel
with a small amount of dry adhesive and cut it out,
using an Xacto knife for any interior cuts
(like the "window" at the top of the A); and scissors for the rest.
Ink or outline around all the edges in black,
so your letter will really stand out.
Affix the monogram to a gift bag (or card, or package)
with foam tape and embellish as desired.
I've attached a couple of Paper Flowers to the letter
and trimmed my plain white bag with a few strips
framed by Pearl Bling Strips
Put a little present into the finished bag and practice looking modest
when your delighted recipient asks, "HOW did you do that??!"
