How To Make A Framed Magazine Monogram

Every time we post a photo that includes the frame collage above our living room’s console table like this…

…or this…


…. or this…


…. we get a slew of emails asking where we bought or how we made the big P print that’s front and center. Well, it’s actually just the first letter of an article in a magazine that we cut out in a neat little 1 x 2 inch rectangle and had blown up around 300% at Kinko’s. You know how some articles start with one large letter and the rest of the first sentence followed? We just cut out that rectangle, enlarged it a bunch, and framed it.

Making it huge and putting it behind glass instantly created a customized monogram with very little work on our part, and we love how it came out! Just flip through magazines until you find your initial and head over to Kinko’s. A few dollars later it should be ready to frame (they look especially great with giant mats and pretty hefty frames to dress them up).

So you too can master the P (get it? Master P? no?) or any other letter that you’d like…
