Fun With Blocks!!

Hi! When I saw this week's DT project for the Cutting Cafe I knew exactly when I wanted to create. (Don't forget to "like" my Facebook page to keep up to date with all of my crafting adventures!) I had been thinking about a project where I could use inspirational sayings and this Fun With Blocks file fit the bill perfectly!

I decided which four, 4 letter, words I wanted to use and cut them out with my machine. I also used the Fun With Blocks file to cut out frames for each side of the block with a circle window in it. Once I started putting the blocks together I decided that I preferred the look of the circles backing each letter.

I placed a belly band around the perimeter to hold the blocks together and attached a rectangle to the top so I would have a canvas to decorate. 


The Paper Flowers are also from the Cutting Cafe (more to come on those!) and then I filled in with some beads and embellishments I had on hand.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this week's project as much as I did creating it. :-)
