DIY Monogram Stickers For Cards

The other night I received our Christmas cards from Minted.com. I knew I was going to be in a mad-dash to get these babies, sealed, stamped, and out to the mailbox. My goal was to get them complete in one evening. I have a super large family on both sides. Most years we send on average 75-100 cards. That’s a lot of stuffing and stamping if you ask me. And in past years (because I was crazy) I would write a message in each card and sign. Not this year–I went with the double-sided “pre-signed” card.

I gathered my supplies and sat down at our coffee table. That was until I had this “ah-ha” idea pop into my head. Instead of just using our Monogram stamp on the actual envelope, why not make a monogram sticker? I instantly added more work to my ever-large plate (however, everyone knows that’s how I roll). Since I had all my supplies on hand this was a free project. Obviously, if you don’t own one or none of these items it will mean a little more of a monetary investment on your part!

Supplies:

I grabbed a wide variety of ink colors and colored carstocks. First up, I tried a silver ink–I made sure that the stamp was wet enough with ink to be applied to the paper

I then stamped close to the edge with the monogram stamp.

Next up, it was time to line the circular punch up to the stamp. For my particular monogram stamp I think a 1.5 inch circular stamp would have been better because you would have been able to see both circular lines around the stamp. However, I did this on the fly and didn’t want to waste a day due to not having the right circular stamp. I also could have cut out a crazy amount of circles using my cricut; however, at the time this seemed easiest for me.

This is what my stamp looked like after it was punched out.

Then I ran it through my favorite Xyron sticker station.

Note–do not do what I did the first time around… Make sure they are well spaced out or else all of your stickers won’t be completely sticky on the back!

This is how it should look!

Then, begin sticking them on the fronts of your envelopes!

I also did some in black and I liked them just as much as the silver.

Thankfully, I achieved my goal of finishing my Christmas cards in one night!!!
