DIY – How to Make Preppy Monogrammed Stickers

This has got to be one of my favorite tutorials.  I found these round Avery stickers in my basement and I immediately started making monograms!

I’ve used these on my water bottle, agenda, phone charger base, iPad case, and more.  So easy and cute!

Step 1:  Make your monogram with the tutorial here.


Step 2:  Buy your Avery labels.  I used these 1 5/8″ diameter glossy white stickers (the perfect size for iPad chargers!).  The 2″ and the 2 1/2″ stickers also work great.

Step 3:  Click here to design your sticker.  Enter the product number, which varies based on the size of the sticker.  For the 1 5/8″ stickers the number is 41461.  If you’re using another size, the number is located on the packaging.


Step 4:  This will lead you to the templates.  Select the plain white template, so you can design your own!  Click “images” and add the photo of your monogram.  Stretch the image to cover the entire circle.


Step 5:  Now click the green “Preview & Print” button.  Put the blank sticker sheets in the printer and print!  You’re done!

How simple, yet so cute!


DIY – How to Make a Monogram

Monograms are essential.  “If it doesn’t move, monogram it.”  Monograms can be added to almost anything, giving it a personal, preppy touch.


Once I discovered how to make a monogram in Word, so many doors opened.  I could monogram binder covers, stickers, and so much more.

Step 1:  Download the Monogram KK font from (free!)

Step 2:  Open a new document.  After downloading the font, it should be listed in the “font” drop down menu.

Step 3:  Add a new text box.  Select the Monogram KK font and type your last initial as a CAPITAL letter (for me, this is a V).  I used 150 pt as the letter size, but you can change it depending on how big or small you want your monogram.


Step 4:  Add a new text box and type your first initial, lowercase.  Repeat with your middle initial.  Layer the text boxes for the desired interlocking effect.  *I used Word 2010 to make my monogram, and when interlocking the letters, I went to “Format” then “Shape Fill” and selected “No Fill”*


*If your Monogram has the green grammar lines under the letters, right click and select “ignore once” to make them disappear*


Step 5: Screen shot your monogram (how to do this varies whether you have a mac or pc computer, use google if you don’t know how).


Yay!  Now go ahead and customize it however you want: change the color of the letters, or add a background.  To add a Lilly Pulitzer print in the background, find the image you’d like off of google.  Save the image to your computer and insert the image into the document.

Below are some of my monograms, feel free to use these ideas!
