Here is the Harvest block tutorial that I promised weeks ago. Sorry, life gets away from me once in a while. Oh, who am I kidding this was a time consuming post and I put it off for as long as I could. There, see I am just like the rest of you! Procrastinator at heart!
Step 1: Cut blocks from a 1x3 piece of wood.(My mistake:The wood is from a 2x3 that you can get at Lowe's) One block for each letter. Cut the blocks as follows.
V- 1 3/4"
Sand the edges just enough to remove any rough edges. Paint blocks either brown or black. Let paint dry completely.(if you want to speed things up, then use a hairdryer to dry the paint) Lightly sand when paint is dry. Sand edges for a distressed look.
You can use and emory board and lightly sand the edges of the paper.
Apply 2" vinyl letters to each block. Here is me (with my pms face on, don't ask my why I look so irritated) demonstrating how to apply vinyl! What happened to the other half of my eyebrow? Time to go get that fixed. You can order your vinyl here. The completed blocks are $12.00 plus shipping, or just the vinyl for $4.00 plus shipping.
After applying the vinyl grab all your ribbon and embellishments. I just used my scrapbooking supplies and my mom had some really cute tulle. Add what ever makes your little heart go pitter pat! Be creative and go for it.
