Pinterest Find: Free Monogram Printable

Monday, I came across a great site via the always-lovely Pinterest where you can create a customized monogram printable ... fahhhhh freeeeee!

You have probably already gathered that (a) I love monograms, and (b) I'm dirt cheap slightly frugal, so I was heading to the site in .03 seconds.

Creating this personalized monogram was incredibly easy.  I saved it as a PDF and dragged it to a flash drive.  Then, just a quick trip to Hobby Lobby for 8x11 cardstock and another trip to Office Max to have it printed, and this D-I-Y was D-O-N-E.


Here she is, sitting pretty on my nightstand.



Total project cost:
Printable: $0.00
Paper: $0.49
Printing: $0.59

And I already owned the frame ... ta-da, a $1.08 project!

Here are some ideas for how you can use this printable:
  • Print in a really girly pink color and hang it on a wall in your closet
  • Slip it in the front clear pocket of a 3-ring binder
  • Print in black and customize it with your married monogram (your name + hubby's name) and add to a gallery wall of B+W photos
  • Add some pizazz to your desk at work with this in a frame
Note: I found that when printed on 8.5x11, it is slightly off-center.  It is best meant to fit an 8x10 frame.  When you cut down your printed paper to size, you'll take off more on the right side and bottom of the paper to make it even.
