By now, y’all know how much I love monogrammed cards.  I think a monogrammed gift set of cards is useful, elegant, and personal.  But on the giving side – they are inexpensive, simple and easy to coordinate colors.  So all around a great gift!  Here are some I made last week – these are teacher Christmas gifts, can you believe I am starting already?!?  I sure can’t!  We’ll see if I get any more done before the day I have to give them….honestly I’d be shocked to not be up until 2am working on them the night before!

So here’s what you need to do these….

Monogram stamps – I get mine {HERE}…there are tons of styles and they are simple and easy to use.

12×12 patterned paper – either double sided with coordinating patterns/solids or two sheets that will work together.

some type of ribbon – I prefer 3/4 in satin ribbon myself.

Nestabilities or punches – I prefer the  classic circle nestabilities, but you can use anything for this part.

 

How I cut the cardstock:

I choose the paper I want for the bottom half of the card and cut a 12 x 3 1/4.  Then cut that into 3 1/4 x 4 in pieces.  This will get you 3 ‘bottoms’ from one strip.  (On the cards I’m showing here, I cut them into 3 x 4 in pieces…but I prefer the bigger ‘bottom’ card.)

For the tip portion of the card I cut a 12 x 2 in strip.  Then cut that into 2 x 4 in pieces.  You’ll get 3 ‘tops’ from one strip.  (Again, on the cards I’m showing here, I cut them into 2 1/4 x 4 in pieces…)

And here’s what they look like…..
