You guys, can I just tell you how smitten I am with these bargain find fruit slice coasters?! I saw them and immediately knew I’d use my Silhouette CAMEO to monogram them and use them for summertime entertaining.

I fell so in love with them, in fact, that I decided to buy no less than 8 sets so that I could send them to friends as surprise “happies”.  There is nothing in this world that I love better than to receive a thoughtful gift for no reason, so I’ve tried to make a concerted effort to send little surprises to others as well.

Tied with some ribbon and attached with some coordinating straws? I wouldn’t complain one bit if you sent me some Monogrammed Fruit Slice Coasters in the mail! Who couldn’t use that kind of Summer sunshine??

Want to make some of your own? Here are the supplies you’ll need:

  • Fruit slice coasters ( I picked mine up at the local dollar store!)
  • Silhouette Vinyl


If you saw Carly’s monogrammed wedding gift jar, we’re going to use the same 3 circle monogram. The only difference is we are going to remove the outer circle and only use the monogram.


You’ll purchase the monograms containing the letters you need from the Silhouette Design store. I got lucky with mine because the A & the B are in the same download but I don’t, however, need the C, D, E or F.

  • Once you have the design open, you’ll highlight all of the monograms, right click, select ungroup and then click on all the letters you do not need and delete them.

My large B was already in place with the smaller right hand B (for Brian) exactly where it needed to be. Whatever your last initial is, work with that circle first. Leaving your large letter in place will help guide your outer letter spacing. So, for me, I removed and deleted the left side B, and replaced it with the small A to represent Aimee.

If you’re unsure of 3 initial monogramming etiquette, generally, you’ll put the shared last name in the center, lady on the left (first) and gentleman on the left (last). So, Aimee and Brian Broussard becomes ABB. Let’s say you’re making them for yourself and you’re unmarried, or for an unmarried friend, you’ll still put the last name in the center, first name initial in the front and middle initial or maiden name last.

How to Make a Monogrammed Coaster

To ensure that all your coaster monograms are the exact same size and spacing, draw a box with your mouse around your monogram, right click, regroup it, then hit duplicate. Duplicate as many times as you need monograms.

  • Remove the negative space with your weeding hook, apply transfer paper, then adhere it to your coasters.

My coasters have a bit of a bumpy rigid texture and I thought it would drive me crazy because the vinyl wouldn’t be perfectly smooth, but there are so darn cute that I don’t mind at all.

For my gifting coasters, I monogrammed 2 of the coasters and left 2 plain. Men seem to have an issue with using coasters with monograms so this gives you the best of both worlds.

Serve your coasters alongside some homemade lemonade and $10 bets someone will ask you where you got your cute coasters. Even better? Serve it with your etched glass serving pitcher!

  1. That’s a cool hostess gift! TFS

  2. Very Cool! Nice and Summery, too.

  3. So cute! And I can honestly say I had never thought about in which order to put monograms like this, so thanks for the tip. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Kelly! I get questions all the time about monogram ordering so figured I’d add it in there- glad you found it helpful!

  4. so cute! <3

  5. Love this!

  6. It doesnt show how she make the little points on the circles.

    1. Are you asking about the white “rind” on the coaster? If so, it looks like they came that way! 😀

    2. Hi Brittney! They came with the white outer ring. 🙂

  7. Oh I love your idea! Thank you for sharing it! I also LOVE those little canning jars mugs with the lids. Can I ask where you purchased them?

    1. Hi Sheila! They were from Pick Your Plum I believe. Love them! 🙂

  8. Does the moisture from the cup affect how the vinyl sticks?

    Love the coasters.

    1. Hi Sharon, I vinyl’d the rough side and use the flat side (underneath) for the actual beverage. That way the drink sits flat AND doesn’t come into too much contact with my vinyl. I’m going to update the post to disclose that since I photographed it with them sitting on them. 🙂

  9. Super cute!

  10. Love the look, but wondering how well the vinyl holds on the coasters textured surface…

    1. Hi Sierra, it’s not really that rough (just not smooth)- it adhered like a charm and is still going strong after several uses. 🙂

  11. So summer-y and fresh looking! What a darling idea for a gift!

  12. Super cute!! thanks for the tips…im new to the silhouette world
