Monogrammed Boxes How-To
In a photo-editing program, create a 2-page document. On the first page, draw a picture box, and then import a box template, from a CD, centering it carefully on the page. Draw a second picture box, and place it on the template where you want the letter to appear. Import letter from a CD, sizing it as desired. Copy template and letter from first page, and paste onto second page in the same position. Delete letter from first page; delete template from second page. Print first page onto colored card stock. Flip card stock over, and print second page with letter on other side. (For a white letter, draw a picture box on the second page larger than the template. Color in box, make the letter white, and print onto white card stock.) Cut out along template's outside edges. Using a bone folder and a straightedge, score straight dotted lines. Score curved lines using a round plate as a guide. Fold along straight lines, and seal with a glue stick. Let dry between heavy books. Fold along curved lines to close box.
