New Kids on the BLOCK...

Here is my new favorite craftiness...
Blocks!
They were surprisingly easy - and I am just in love! Change up the paper...do a last name...or favorite word...put it on the mantle! Oh yes, there are many new block ideas swimming in my head! Allikaye loves them too (yes, they are pretty durable...so far)!
A Sparkly Messy Life inspired me and taught me how to make these fun blocks!
You need:
plain wooden blocks
cute awesome can't live without paper (I bought mine from Janesays)
mod podge (why is it called that? Does it mean something?)
And sticky letters (I bought tagboard ones...with glitter)
And here is a 'screen kiss' to leave you with...
Get blockin'!

Super cute blocks! I saw those over on A Sparkly Messy Life too...I bought the blocks but haven't started them yet...been busy working on cupcake invites and decor for an upcoming birthday bash I am planning! BUT...I am thinking I am going to make just the first letter of each kid at the party's name and pass them out with the favors! How fun is that?!!

LOVE your bright colors! SUPER FUN!! What brand are those letters? I think I need some!!
