Cricut Monogrammed Flower Letter
What you need:
Knife Blade and Housing
Strong Grip Mat Board
Cricut Tool Set (weeder and scraper)
Strong Grip Mat Board
- Find your favorite font and type out a letter. I used Ariel Black capital letters. This project is better with thick fonts since you can’t get too detailed cutting wood.
- Place Basswood on the Strong Grip Mat Board and tape around with painters tape to make it extra secure.
- Insert the Knife Blade and Housing and cut your material on the Basswood setting. Keep an eye on your machine because it will cute several times. Stay near by to make sure once it gets through the wood it doesn’t lift.
- Once your letter is cut get your card stock out to start making flowers.
- Find your favorite rolled flower design and cut on a green or blue mat board with your favorite cardstock. I can fit 4 flowers on one 12 x 12 deluxe paper.
- Roll your flowers and seal them with a dot of hot clue. Then glue them on your wooden letter for an adorable Cricut Monogrammed Flower Letter!
More gift basket for teens ideas:
Are you looking for more basket fillers. I think that personalized t-shirts, hair accessories, mugs or water bottles, picture frames, notebooks, colored pens or pencils, make-up bags, makeup brushes, external charges or extra phone chargers are all great ideas to fill up a gift basket for a teen. Presentation is always important too. I try to stick to a color theme when putting it all a basket.
Add some clear cellophane and a ribbon around it for a final touch.
We also love making personalized mugs with our Cricut Mug Press and even making cute leather earrings!
