1. Select desired prints and/or solids for the face(s) of the monogram letter. Lay the letter on the back side of the paper and trace around it using a pencil. Flip the letter over and trace around it again using a pencil. Set this aside.
2. Paint the remaining sides (all sides except for the front and back face) of the letter with the desired paint color. Set this aside to dry.
3. While the paint is drying, create a ribbon flower to add to the top of the monogram letter. To do this, adhere one end of the ribbon to the center of the felt square with hot glue. Continue by twisting and wrapping the ribbon around the center, adhering it in place with hot glue. Once the flower reaches the desired shape, adhere the end underneath the flower and trim any excess
4. Cut out 2 letters from step one. Once the paint is dry, adhere them to their respective faces of the letter.
5. Adhere a strip of ribbon down the center of the painted sections of the letter.
6. Adhere the ribbon flower at the top corner of any desired face. Add a pleated section of ribbon to the bottom of the same face of the letter, the side opposite the flower. Embellish the flat side of the pleat with a few rhinestones.
7. Add a saw tooth hanger to the back of the letter and hang and/or set on a shelf.
