Step 2: Instructions

 

Directions:

Cut 3 wood blocks with a chop saw- 2 measuring 6" and one measuring 4". If you do not know how to cut wood or are uneasy about doing it- you can have them cut at your local hardware store or you can also find these blocks at most craft stores already sanded for about 50 cents a block. If cutting them yourself, make sure to sand the edges with a hand sander.

Next, gather your favorite Scrapbook paper and Paper cutter and using blocks and a pencil, trace around the blocks from the corner onto the opposite side of the papers and cut with paper cutter- you can round your edges with scissors if you would like to, but that part is optional.

Next, Paint all the edges with white paint(except the bottom of the block) and set aside to dry. Once they are dry, sand all edges with hand sander if you want a more rustic look.

Step 3: Finishing Up

 

Now it is time to glue your paper! If you do not have vinyl or paper on hand you can click on the pictures below and right click "save image" then paste to a word doc to print- or if you have followed these instructions and have your paper ready, glue your paper using a foam brush and Mod Podge.

 

 

Once your blocks are all glued- let them dry for at least 30 minutes. You can cover with Mod Podge at this point to provide a protective coat or just display as is!
