- My 'mantel' shadowbox.
- My door
- My table centerpiece
- Hanging something on the back of my cupboards
- Window clings
Well, for the shadowbox, I saw some cute blocks at my aunt Dana's once, and then mom's cute 'title' blocks on her mantel, and talking to mom about sentiment blocks, I decided to make my own! Here's what I did!
First I purchased five cute little 2" blocks at hobby lobby. Then Chris painted them black for me. (Chris is artsy and was pretty excited when I asked him to paint to help me with a craft.)
Then I found different scrapbooking paper for each theme. I decided to do 5 different sheets (1 per block) that fit the theme. My themes are: Snow, XO<3XO, Lucky, Spring, Sun, and B-Day. Then I cut the paper into small squares, slightly smaller than the blocks.
Then I lined them up by theme and which block I wanted them on. (The order mattered to me.)
Next I mod-podged the paper squares onto the blocks.
Following this, I borrowed my mom's cricut and cut out the themes onto colored paper.
Then I mod-podged the letters/symbols of the theme onto the block, and covered with a layer of mod-podge. Because I used cut out scrapbooking cardstock for the letters, I had to double and sometimes triple layer the outside mod-podge to seal the letters on.
AREN'T THEY CUTE!?! I'm going to have to make some more sets!
