Etsy Find

My friend, Lexi, showed me these really cute blocks on Etsy. I have to say that I think that they would make a perfect Christmas gift for grandma!!Don't want to spend the mula? Then make them! Just paint some wooden blocks (you can also go to home depot, get a 2x4 then cut them to size), Mod Podge the pictures onto blocks (let it dry), place vinyl lettering on top (making sure not to cover the faces!), then distress the edges (you can use an ink pad). Don't know anybody who does vinyl lettering? Then you can buy alphabet rub-ons (in the scrapbook section of Michael's or Joann), or you can buy stamps and emboss the letters on.
