Getting Personal

 
Are you looking for a way to personalize your project? A monogram stamp may be the answer.
 
Watch this video to learn more about how to add a personal touch to cards, tags or gift bag with the new My Acrylix® monogram stamps from Close To My Heart. The stamp will also dress up a family picture in your scrapbook or framed print!
 
 
 
Priced at just $2.95, a monogram stamp makes a nice gift. Choose the last initial for a wedding gift or the first initial for a friend. Wouldn't a pre-teen girl love one to personalize her notes and diary?
 
Here's a fun way I packaged one for a friend:
 
 

This cute "crayon" box was super simple using the Artiste Cricut cartridge. The box is on page 47 of the handbook (3D Object/Shift).


The window on the front of the box is the perfect size to display the stamp. I made sure that it would show through by backing the stamp with a piece of cardstock. I attached the carrier sheet to the cardstock with glue dots which are easily removed by the recipient. The original package for the stamp is included with the gift, but out of sight behind the cardstock.

A knot of Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon adds a final touch, then viola! A beautifully presented gift.
