Hi Glitter Girl,
You asked for some problems, I think! Looking through my stash of half used paper packs from ages ago, I found a number of sheets with largish monograms, about 2 or 3 inches high and all in matching patterns for the paper pack, but now I no longer have all the letters. Also, they are quite big, so hard to fit on a double LO, never mind a single 12 x 12. I do have some of the matching pattern paper left, but just what to do with the individual letters - which no longer spell out obvious words!
Hope you can help,
Thanks, Victoria

Not Glitter Girl but thought I would say that I use those as the first letter of a name or title and then use regular smaller letter in one of the colors of the print for the rest. I started doing that with the large (6" or more) chipboard that Bo Bunny made and really like the look.

So if the name is Lori only the 'L' is large and the rest is smaller. You can run the smaller letters straight out or if the name is short like Lori the "ori" can be put up and down.

Also not Glitter Girl

Not for a layout, but you could make a nice little pack of cards for someone as a gift and include one with the first letter of their first or last name. Like... A monogram If you don't have enough to do 4 cards with the same letter you can do one that way and the rest all different.

How about using one as an embellishment on a seperate part of the page to the title. Would work well for layouts about one person cause you could use the letter of their name.

Or, if it's a page about a couple you could use two and put 'A&B'
