Are you in love with the monogram trend? Do you love it on your clothes and accessories or just in home decor? I'm more drawn to home decor. I decided that I wanted a monogrammed plate to add to our home decor and knew I could do this quickly and easily with my Silhouette and some vinyl. (Thank goodness it's quick and easy, I haven't had time for much else craft wise lately).
I picked up an oval shaped platter from the thrift store. You can see it in it's "before" state below.
With just a little cleaning and some vinyl decals, I now have a fabulous decor piece.
I first measured length and width of the area I would be working in so I'd know how big to size my overall design in Silhouette.
Sorry, I don't have screen shots but here's the basic workflow.
I chose some swirls out of "Swirls set of 7". I ungrouped them so I had just the one I wanted and then copied it and reversed the copy. I took the ellipse tool and drew two circles, one a little larger than the other, with the smaller inside the other. I lined up the two swirls on each side. Then I typed my initial in the middle of the circle using the font "Monogram KK". That's it.
All I had to do was cut it out and apply to the surface of the platter.
Check out my round up of one dozen magnificent monogram projects for more ideas.
