~NSD Challenge - CCR - Creating a split letter monogram

NSD Challenge #7 begins with a fabulous CCR tutorial by Narelle on how to create a split letter Monogram.  These make wonderful anniversary or wedding or housewarming gifts and can be mounted in a glass frame or pretty much any solid surface.  I chose a $1.99 bread board from Michael's.  First I covered each side and the outer edges with a different pattern paper and applied modge podge.    Once that was dry, I applied my vinyl monogram.  Two more coats of modge podge went on top of that because I want to attach this to one of my porch posts.  I threaded some raffia through the hold to hang it.  I did not use CCR for this project.  I used my Gypsy, so I had to do the last part of the tutorial by hand since my Gypsy just did not want to cut it correctly.  Anyway,  below is my finished project and I can alternate the side that shows.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Thanks for your kind comments Nadia! It was fun (even weeding those tiny little letters - grrrr). ;-)


I treasure each comment. Thank you for taking the time to leave me some love!
