Instructions

  1. Trace the sides of the blocks onto scrapbook paper and the color copies of the photos. Trim the papers to fit the blocks. You will need 1 paper or image per side.
  2. For each side of the block: Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper, position onto the block, press with your fingers to remove any air bubbles, wait 15 min and apply a top-coat to seal.
  3. Paint the letters with baby Pink, Soft Apply, Steel Gray and Pure Black. Once dry, dry brush White Adirondack over all the letters.
  4. Hot glue the letters across the fronts of the blocks. Add additional embellishments to the blocks.
Tip: Make it vintage! Use Mod Podge Antique to create a vintage yellow hue over the block.
