DIY Favor: Personalized Stationery Box

The other day I stumbled across a great font that automatically creates monograms. It only takes a minute to make a really nice design and it's free to download. Here's a link to the font and the monogram I made...


I decided to make a super easy favor using the monogram - personalized stationery.
I found some adorable little boxes at my go-to-store Target in the dollar section. There were three different styles (each priced at $1) - I went with the preppy green and pink design.


I dug up some leftover ribbon from this project and wrapped it around the box...


Then I simply attached the monogrammed oval onto the box (I printed the monogram on adhesive-backed paper). Too easy!


Finally, I created a design using the monogram in a Word document and printed out/cut several sheets for the box...


This favor cost a little over $1 and took about 10 minutes to complete.
Easy + Cost Effective = Happiness.

I love this and have tried desperately to try it on my own, with no success. What am I doing wrong?

Hey Craftlovin' Mama!

There is a 'READ ME' file included in the font zip file that explains step-by-step how to create the monogram (it's not intuitive, so you definitely want to follow the steps). Hope this helps - please let me know if you need more info.
