Monogram Tile for a Wedding Gift

 This is without the stand

I bought a tile from World of Tile for more than I wanted to spend...but it was a natural stone, and a wedding gift, so I wanted something really cool.

Then I designed the monogram in Sure Cuts A Lot.

I decided that since there were many colors in the stone that I wanted different colors of vinyl.  I used black for the circle and the corner detail.  I used dark brown for the H and then I layered white and brown for their last name and established year.  The white was too stark since the tile had more of a cream to it, so the brown overlay toned it down a bit.

My hubby decided that it would be a good idea to strengthen up the tile, so he got out his stinky fiberglass resin and applied it to the back.  I picked up an easel stand for it at Target for about $8.00

Then because I'm thrifty I didn't want to spend $5 on a wedding gift bag.  I had a plain white one at home and whipped out the ol' vinyl and Cricut one more time and added the H monogram to the bag.  It turned out really nice and I hope they will cherish it for years to come!

Here it is all wrapped up

That's really pretty! What font did you use? Thanks

Shell, I used Boroque Script for the H and Caprica for their name and est. date.
