Difficulty: Easy

Materials:

2x4 wood board

Scrapbook paper

Mod Podge

Vinyl or Die Cuts or

Painted letters

Paper Cutter

Scissors

Craft Paint

Foam Brush

Directions:

Cut five wood blocks with a chop saw measuring 4" and one measuring 5 1/2". 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.

Gather your favorite Scrapbook paper and Paper cutter and using blocks and pencil, trace around the blocks from the corner of the opposite side of the papers and cut with paper cutter. If your blocks are all the same size- you can use this first square as your template for tracing onto the rest of the squares. Use scissors to round the edges of the paper to fit the block better.

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.

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 square using a foam brush and Mod Podge.

Here are the printables-

 

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!
