Valentines Blocks




Last week I decided to whip up these Valentines blocks. I figured since I have kids I have to make an effort to decorate for special days. That being said I have next to nothing for Valentines decor. I had bought these wooden blocks from Michaels with the intent of doing something for T's nursery. But I figured what the heck I would use them for this project instead.

First I painted them white and then adhered paper to all sides, I used Close to my Hearts Sweetheart paper pack. I then stamped letters and words in black ink using the Trinity Alphabet stamp set. Finished it off by adding a few hearts using my ever fabulous heart punch.

Here are some pics of the other sides:




I did the word 'baby' just in case I decided to put it in the nursery after Valentines day. Being that it is pink it would still work in T's room.

But for now it sits on my mantel.

...and I ended up doing a Valentines insert for this frame.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
