Quick Monogram Tile

It should be evident by now that I’m a paper addict. While I may gravitate without thinking towards certain brands, I’m not exclusive. For me it’s more about do I like the pattern. Michaels had these paper packs 50% off ( I promise they are not paying me although they could if they wanted…hubs would like that!) :
Reg $4.49 so $2.24 after the 50% off, and with 24 pages, that’s less than $.10 per piece. I wanted to make a quick gift so I poked in my stash and pulled out a tile I picked up in a sale bin somewhere made of I don’t know what…MDF maybe…got out my Mod Podge and some embellishments and cut a letter from gray vinyl using the Wall D├ęcor and More cartridge on my Expression.
Mod Podged the paper on the tile and roughed up the edges with an emery board. Applied the monogram and embellished with some self adhesive rhinestones.
This is the “tile”.
I wanted something else so I decided to try a rolled paper flower …something I never have any luck with but this time I was determined. It still unraveled a little in the middle and I didn’t like the hole it left but I was otherwise happy with it. So I “plugged the hole” with some iridescent Stickles! Just filled it up and now it has a sparkly center.

I can definitely relate to your Chartophilia! I cannot pass up on a good deal on fabulous paper. I admire the fact that you actually use your papers, rather than just stockpiling, and to such beautiful and artful effect!
