DIY a Monogram Notebook Gift

Thoughtful gifts don’t need to cost a lot. I think anyone would love to receive a monogrammed notebook and they are so quick and easy to make. I bought the notebook at the Dollar Tree, they come in different colors but I loved the pink one. I cut a quick monogram out of vinyl on my Cricut and it is done.

Many of the items I use in posts are provided by the manufacturers to promote their products.

  • Black Vinyl

  • Transfer tape
  • t-pin
  • cut file
  • scissor

I cut the monogram on a Cricut Maker but any Cricut machine would work. The frame is from Cricut: Decorative Leaf Frame(#M1BB7B4). If you want to use my file here is a link to the project. [monogram] This project is also great for using up leftover scraps of vinyl.

After your monogram is cut and weeded, apply your transfer tape and peel off the backing paper. Apply the monogram to your notebook and you are done.

  1. What a great project for anyone! There are so many nice journals our there that just need a little customization. Love it!

    1. Thanks, Lydia. I bought this one with adding the monogram in mind. Of course it took me a bit to get around to doing it!
