Valentine Blocks

I saw these absolutely adorable blocks over on Heartland Paper and just had to make them for my own home.

I started out by cutting 4 blocks 5" by 7" and
sanded the edges of any rough spots.
I than went through my 3! huge boxes of scrapbook paper and pulled out all the pink and valentine themed papers.
After deciding which papers I wanted to use I pulled
out the big guns. . . The Cricut. to make 4" letters. While the Cricut was cutting away,
I cut for each block a 5" by 7" piece of scrapbook paper.
After all my letters and Heart for the 'O' were cut out I moved them around on the 5" by 7" papers until they looked just right.
Than in came the modge podge to glue the paper and
letters to the blocks.
Drying Time :)
While I waiting impatiently for the blocks to dry, I dug out some Heart shaped brads and proceed to use wire cutters to cut the clips off so they would lay flat on the blocks. I also ribbon all the way around each block so the wood wouldn't scratch my entertainment center. After a little accessorizing . . . All Done :) I had so much fun making these and now enjoy looking at them on our Entertainment Center.

These are super cute! I made some similar ones for Hanukkah, but it would be fun to make them for all the holidays so I could have different ones up all year!
