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!!!
