Monogrammed Charger Tutorial

Hey babes!

My morning was spent crafting this iPhone charger wrap from {For Chic Sake}. If you haven't seen this website yet, you need to check it out - it has tons of cute ideas for DIYs!


In this post, I'm going to go through exactly how I made these.
It's super easy and if you follow all of the directions, it should work for you!

Materials:
1. Computer
2. Full sheet sticker paper
3. Color printer

First, download the pdf {here}. You may have to sign up for a scribd account, but it only takes two seconds. 

Make sure the pdf opens in Adobe Reader. {NOT Preview} This is extremely important!!

When it opens, scroll to the second page and highlight the first monogram. A message might pop up and say "Please Note: Click 'Sign' to fill out and sign this form." Just click "close." Then delete the letters that are already typed in.


Next, you can type in your own initials.

Type the first letter (lowercase) and the middle letter (uppercase).

Next, THIS IS IMPORTANT! Type the NUMBER or SYMBOL that corresponds with the last letter.

A … 1    H … 8    O … %    V … +
B … 2    I … 9     P … ^     W … {
C … 3   J … 0     Q … &     X … }
D … 4  K … !      R … *      Y … \
E … 5   L … @   S … (       Z … :
F … 6   M … #   T … )
G … 7   N … $   U … -


Then hit "enter," and it should automatically make all the block monograms look the same.

To change the script monograms, type your initials as you normally would {without the symbol for the third letter}. It should look like this when you're done:


Go to "Print," click only the second page, and voila! 
You can cut them out and stick them on your iPhone charger, phone, or anywhere else.

If you're still having trouble, try looking at the {frequently asked questions} page. 

Good luck!! :)

Love, Cait

  1. I'm finding so many great blogs today! So exciting. I've wanted to do this since I saw in on Pinterest a little while ago, but I have such trouble with my color printer. I'm definitely going to have to figure out my printer issues and try it. My husband and I are constantly trying to figure out who's charger is who's when we go on trips. If I have mine out he tries to say it's his so he doesn't have to go find one. Ha!

    And I actually came over to your blog from another where you had commented that you had the Ulta Butter London deal in your planner for weeks now. I did the same thing!! When I saw it, I added it to my planner and then to my phone to pop up so that I'd remember to order online!
