DIY Monogram Chevron Binder Covers

Check out my new blog: Sugar Spice and Sparkle!

There are two things I love in life: monograms and chevron.  Okay so maybe I love way more than that but for the purposes of this post lets pretend those are the two main things ;)

So here we have a great DIY that combines those two and brings them into your everyday life!

Binder covers!!  I know school can be a bit... drab, but these binder covers will brighten up each and every class!

Just a few easy steps and you'll be ready to print out and use your new beauties by the next school day. Not in school anymore?  These are also perfect for family documents and organization binders!

The first step is to go back here and read my "How to Chevron" tutorial.  All you need is Microsoft Word (and maybe a little patience, lol)

Next add a circle (or oval, or square, or rectangle... whatever floats your boat) anywhere on the page.  I like mine in the center towards the top.  Maybe you like yours dead center or in the bottom left corner (why?).  You get the point - somewhere on the page.  Format the shape to be white with a black line.

To get this:

Third you'll need 3 text boxes inside your shape.  The center one will use a larger font size than the other two.
Now click on this:

If you don't like any of the Microsoft Word fonts that are cursive looking, just Google or go on Pinterest and search for a monogram font.  Click here to see a great board of free fonts ;)

Now use the font you love and type one letter of your monogram into each of the text boxes.  Position them accordingly and you are all done!  Print that baby out and put her on a binder or notebook.

Having a hard time making it look right?  Don't have the time for all this?  Head over to Precious Prep and I'll make one for you!  Actually I'll make 8 for you!  Check it out here.

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.  Use the buttons to the right :)

Let me know if you have questions and how yours turn out!
