Customize a simply wrapped gift with a lovely monogram. First, adhere a scrap piece of patterned paper to the gift box; this will serve as the background of the cutout monogram. After wrapping the present, make a template letter from a printout of a favorite font. Place it directly over the patterned-paper area and cut through the gift wrap by lightly following the template with a crafts knife. If parts of the letter come loose, adhere to the background paper with glue.
