Hello, and happy February! I am getting into the spirit of Valentines Day this week. How about you? So I thought I would share a fun Valentine craft project with you today. Valentine Blocks!
4 Wooden blocks, Sandpaper, Craft paint, Printed card stock paper, Glue, Doubled sided tape, Protectorate spray
So first I created the design for the blocks with some darling elements and papers from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients Heart and Soul kit. They are currently on sale for just $1 each.
My blocks measure 4″ x 4″ so I made my cutouts to fit those dimensions. I sanded and painted my blocks and let them dry. Then I printed my image on glossy card stock paper and cut them to fit. At this point you can glue the image to the blocks. Now are you ready for my secret? If you are like me I reuse my blocks for seasonal decor. So instead of glue I used a few pieces of double sided tape to attach my image to the blocks. Then when the next holiday comes around I can reuse my blocks for a new decor project!
One of the things I love about this project are the many different ways I can display my blocks. On any given day I can change my decor to be horizontal, vertical or stacked in a square.
I really loved working with the Heart and Soul kit. It had some fantastic elements and papers for this project. I hope I inspired you to create! xoxo ~Terresa Burnham
