Today's DIY tutorial is for all the lovely fashionistas out there! When it comes to gifts, I try to seek out something based on their interests/personality/things they love. This one is for a friend who is a fan of bags so I thought why not add a monogram for an added personalized touch! Searched on Pinterest to see how others have done DIY monogram. So many creative ways, don't know how we have lived without Pinterest. I was most in love with The Atelier version.
- Clutch (Scored this one at Forever 21 for $14)
- Gold Paint (Got at Michaels, Martha Stewart brand)
- Adhesive Stencil Film (Got at Michaels, Martha Stewart brand)
- Xacto Knife
- Cutting Mat
- Fine Paint Brushes
Step 1: Print out your initials in black ink on regular paper (I printed a few different sizes to see which I liked best). Choose a size that fits best depending on the size of your clutch.
Step 2: Tape monogram onto the adhesive film and using an xacto knife to cut the letters. Remove the paper backing and place the adhesive film onto the pouch.
Step 3: Center the adhesive stencil on your clutch and press firmly/smooth it down.
Step 4: Paint one coat of the gold paint. Let the paint dry for one hour. Paint a second coat and let dry.
Step 5: Voila, fill your clutch with your favorite things!
