Camden REALLy wanted monogrammed stockings this year-I have no idea why other than the fact that he is really into his initials right now. Rather than plunk down $60 on new stockings I saw cute monogram pins at Target that were $3 each. I had 4 of them in my cart until I realized how dumb I was being since I could MAKE them!

 Jenn’s blog had an origami box with a sparkly red a on the tag-I LOVED it!

so I decided to use her a as inspiration and bust out chipboard letters I have pulled out before but never used.

Step by step:

I smooshed the chipboard letter into my craft ink-I decided to use Rose Red (since I cannot find my Real Red craft pad-grrrr) to give a good background color base.

Sprinkle the wet craft ink with Heat and Stick Powder (I rarely use it-but for this project it seemed to be the perfect thing!!!)

No pic-heat with your heat gun and when it looks “wet” sprinkle it with red glitter. You can use any color but I wanted mine all red. Then reheat it again just a touch to get the glitter set.

Embellish with ribbons, etc. I used rhinestones, ribbons, and cord to dress them up. Add pin backs and VOILA you have monogram stocking pins!!!

    I have been looking for pre-made Christmas stocking monograms for a couple of years as I just don’t have the time to make my own anymore. Imagine my surprise when I see you and Jenn in this post! While I never had the opportunity to meet you in person, I did meet Jenn. I miss my crafty times, and am grateful for the people that I did meet during my times. Happy Holidays!
