For a standout title, try using large monogram letters for your entire title. I used Basic Grey undressed chipboard monograms for these layouts. (Note: chipboard that is plain and unfinished is often called undressed, bare, or naked.) For extra letters, you can trace on chipboard and cut them out. Next, I traced the letters on cardstock, cut out, embellished, and glued to the chipboard. Be sure to embellish the letters before adhering to the chipboard. The ways to embellish these monograms are endless. You can use buttons, brads, eyelets, snaps, rivets, charms, ribbon, fiber, clips, staples, tags, diecuts, etc. You can also use techniques such as stamping, stitching, inking, distressing, doodling, etc. My favorite adhesive when using chipboard is Liquid Glass by CTMH. There is a bit of drying time involved but it will hold forever!
