3. Tape a piece of stencil paper on top of the monogram, and match it up to the monogram paper.

4. Cut around your monogram using an Exacto knife. Be careful with letters such as B or D that have a space in the middle. Make sure to leave a small area that you don’t cut so that the letter stays connected. See diagram below.
