Hi there! I’m continuing on today with my DIY Christmas gifts series and today I’m sharing how to make a monogrammed clip board. This would be a cute little Christmas or beginning of the year present for a teacher and it’s super simple to make.
I used the Cricut Maker 3 and I love how easy it makes it to personalize everything. Cricut Design Space has a large inventory of fonts and images so you can make a fantastic monogram.
Monogrammed Clip Board Tutorial
Open my Design Space Monogram project file. Click Customize. Then you will want to click on the monogram letters. Click the Detach button at the bottom right.
Now you can double click on each letter to change it to the initials that you want to use. Once you have the initials all set then you click Make it. You’ll be taken to a screen where you will see the different cuts laid out on mats in the order that they will be cut. Design Space will walk you through selecting your materials and loading the appropriate blade. Make sure you load your vinyl with the backing side down, vinyl side up.
Once everything is cut then you will weed out the pieces of vinyl that are not part of your design.
Apply transfer tape to the front of your vinyl. Then remove the vinyl backing, leaving the vinyl on the transfer tape.
Use the transfer tape to apply the vinyl onto your clip board.
And you’re done! I opted to just do a few of the layers because I loved the look of the black with the beige vinyl so I just didn’t add the other layers with more color for my clip board.
I love that you can get super creative with this project with changing up the fonts, colors, or using a name instead of a monogram.
