Materials List

  • 4 x 4
  • Wood stain
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Sandpaper
  • Printed letters or Cricut-cut letters

Instructions

  1. Cut your 4 x 4 into 3 1/2" wide pieces.

  2. Use your chosen stain to stain your blocks. Let your stained blocks dry overnight.

  3. Cut your scrapbook paper into 3" squares.

  4. Put Mod Podge on the back of your scrapbook paper and on the front face of your blocks.
