DIY Monogram Purse

DSC_4015

I made myself a monogram purse a week of so ago.  I love purses they will always be my number one obsession! I showed my Mom and she said she wanted one so I made her one as well.  I did my purse in gold and she decided she wanted her’s black, I like how they both turned out but for picture purposes the black looks better.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the stencil out of contact paper.  I always do my stencils out of contact paper because it is cheaper than vinyl and works great.

Make sure you push all your edges down REALLY GOOD! If you don’t it will bleed and look messy.  I took my finger nail and pushed all the edges down two or 3 times.

I used black acrylic paint and a foam brush.  First do you strokes vertical and then do another coat horizontally.  By doing this you will get less of a streaky look.

They both turned out great! I like the distinct look of the black and the gold is a little more subtle.
