So for years now, I have wracked my brain as to why my local craft store (Hobby Lobby) does not sell large, pre-cut vinyl adhesive letters. It has driven my crazy because those of us without vinyl cutting machines like the Cricut, want us some large sticky vinyl letters too so we can monogram and do other stuff.
So yesterday, I made a HUGE, life changing discovery at Hobby Lobby (world issues here, I know).. I went down this little known aisle at the back of the store that I swear had cobwebs. It’s the aisle for school projects like massive sized rulers and and large portfolios for storing art. Right smack in the middle of all the cobwebs was a stack of letters that I thought were just stickers for garage sales but as I looked closer, they were large vinyl permanent adhesive letters in every size, font and even gold foils! ‘m pretty sure I let out a loud squeal… Did I mention beautiful gold foil?!?
This is what they look like:
Look at this pretty gold foil:
Even better yet, they have multiples of one letter (like 5-8) and the whole package is $3.79 for the 1 inch size!!
I also searched the brand and found that there is a huge selection on Amazon as well here, for those of you not near a Hobby Lobby. Be sure and pick up the permanent ones and not the removable ones if you want to permanently monogram. Michaels may have them too, not sure..
Ok, let me show you why I am so excited about these vinyl treasures and what you can do with them and why you need to get you some…
For gift ideas, fill a jar with bubble bath and monogram using the 1″ inch size for the first and middle initial and then use the larger 2″ size for the last name initial in the middle:
Do the same letter layout on glass decorative dishes for holding jewelry, soaps or like I do on my desk for the little stuff:
The black letters are great too and you can do the same small/large letter monogram layout on almost anything! I used the 1″ and the 2″ letters for monogramming a cooler:
Nothing is safe right now in my house since I got my hands on these letters. I also monogrammed all my sketch books, calendars and binders:
If you’re never used vinyl adhesives before, it’s real easy! After you place your letters on an item, use a credit card to smooth out and they are attached, permanently. Again, be sure and pick up the permanent letters and not the removable.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
