My most favorite bridesmaid gift was a beautiful glass jewelry box personalized with my initials. Sure a shirt, hat, or bag that says ‘bridesmaid’ is fine, but what do you do with it after you’re done being a bridesmaid? Wear the shirt to bed? Add the bag to your grocery stash in the car? Why not personalize something for your favorite ladies that they will want to keep and that they will cherish… like these darling monogram rose gold boxes!
It Can Hold All The Things
These adorable boxes can hold jewelry, hair ties, paper clips, business cards, anything you want. By not putting “jewelry” on the box and just a monogram or an initial, it allows the gift receiver to use it however they like. The rose gold on rose gold makes it easy to go with all types of decor.
- Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker, either will work
- Rose Gold Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
- Jewelry Boxes
Create In Design Space
The first step is to login to Design Space and start designing your unique monograms or initials. Script fonts that also have glyphs are perfect for this type of design. I used Watermelon Script for this project. Prepare your mat and get ready to cut!
Let Your Cricut Work It’s Magic
Weed The Designs
Weed, (aka. remove) all the excess vinyl that isn’t a part of your design. Using the Cricut weeding tools makes the removal of intricate pieces super easy.
Transfer tape is the BEST and if you’ve never used it, you must try it. Basically you transfer your new vinyl stickers from their base to a clear film so you can properly position them on their final resting place. Cut a piece of transfer tape just larger than your designs, peel and evenly smooth on top of the vinyl using the scraping tool. Then cut the designs down to size.
Adhere The Designs
Finally, the fun part. Remove the white vinyl backer sheet leaving just the clear transfer tape and your design. Then place on top of your item and gently burnish with the scraping tool. Next, pull away the transfer tape to reveal your awesome personalized boxes!
