The letters are styled for each section of the monogram - just select the ones you need. I colored mine with a chalk ink while they were still attached to the packaging - no ink on the fingers!
I covered each section of the box with a pretty patterned paper. I wanted the monogram to really stand out so I grabbed a chipboard circle from my stash, covered it in a vintage gold cream paint, and glued the letters to it. I added the circle to the front of my decorated box and now it is ready to store my keepsakes.
