This month’s Create with Cricut challenge project really had me stumped for awhile. What can you create with a Cricut machine and tissue paper that is worth the time? Hmmm…so after much thinking I finally came up with a plan. This Tissue Paper Monogram was such a fun thing to create for my daughter’s room. She’s a teen and things will change quickly in terms of what she likes, but for now this is the perfect addition to her bedroom door decor and only cost a few dollars!

Here’s how I did it!
Use your Cricut Machine to cut out the letter. I didn’t take photos of this process but I did do some VIDEO!
First, choose the colors of tissue paper you’d like to use. I did not use the reds, oranges, pinks or blacks.
Cut the tissue paper into strips. I cut the whole stack at once, this makes for a lot less cutting, but you do have to hold it securely so they don’t slip apart.
Cut the strips into small squares.
Crumple each square (or two or three) and decoupage it to the kraft board letter. Keep doing this until the entire thing is covered.
Small section finished.
You can either add the glue with a brush or by dripping it onto the letter.
Here’s a close-up! So fun!
There you go, all finished! My daughter loves having it on her door and announcing to the world that this is HER room, and her room only!
Looks great on her door, don’t you think? I love that the colors aren’t too bright, but it’s still girly and fun.
What do you think? Quick and simple project! You could cut out the letters and let your kids go to town with the tissue papering!
