Really nice, huh?
Did you read this post? I loved the idea, but didn't have anyone who had an embroidery business who owed me a favor. So I ordered a $1 iron-on monogram patch from an online store called Laughing Lizards (I'm getting link lazy, just google it). The velvet ribbon was also under $1 at the fabric store. Both were applied with all-purpose, tacky glue.
The base was antiqued with a green paint in the grooves. I went over them with a black craft paint with a paper towel and my fingers.
Thanks for the idea, Rhoda!
