I love handmade gifts. — Giving them. Getting them. Making them.
So I was thrilled that my sweet friend Shelley had already chosen her soon-coming baby’s name “Amelia.” It opened the possibilities for a monogrammed gift.
Using her nursery colors as my guide, I bought ribbon, two sheets of decorative paper, a letter “A,” and a 12×12 paint canvas.
I attached the ribbon and “A” with hot glue, and I attached the papers with adhesive dots that are 1/8″ thick to give some layered dimension to the piece.
You could make this SO easily in any color just by changing out the ribbon and paper.
Best of all, the supplies for this gift came in just under $10 yet it is completely custom, personalized and an original piece of artwork.
I will be making more of these in the near future!
