Good Morning my friends! Yes, I realize that it is Wednesday, but I am telling you this weekend away totally got away from me. I made this project last week. Took all of the pictures. All I needed to do was write the post - Did that happen - NOPE!!
Oh well!! What are you going to do?? I loved this project and it was actually way easier than I anticipated, so I hope you love it too!!
I made a banner last week, but I love those block signs that are all over Etsy and Pinterest. I thought that I would be able to make one.
My little lady and I headed to Michael's to get the goods.
I found wood in small and large blocks - I got 3 of each. The HUBS was not thrilled that I spent $$$ on pre-cut wood as he could have done it cheaper - but he's been working a ton and I didn't feel like waiting. It's nice to have options!
I picked up 6 sheets of scrapbook paper. I am HORRIBLE about saving scraps, but summer or bright scrapbook paper scraps would have been PERFECT too!
I also bought some white vinyl to use in the Cricut, but ended up choosing to use some colored vinyl sheets I had purchased a LONG LONG time ago - I thought they would stand out better.
It was so easy to put together - I traced the wood blocks and cut the paper to match. Then mod podged the paper to the blocks. Let it dry - of course. Then I played around with the Cricut to make the letters. I am not a Cricut expert, so it takes me some time to get the size just right. Finally, I placed the letters on the blocks and it is ready to display!
I hope you like what you see - It was fun and cute and best of all easy!!
I have another made it Monday that I am working on for next week - and it's baby themed! 4 weeks til baby!!
Until then - I would love to hear from you. What are you crafting this week??
