Here's a tutorial of something very similar:
Easy Photo Blocks
To give a simplistic idea of what we did:
One of the men in our lives cut the wood and beveled it for us.
We painted the blocks and sanded the edges. (Yes, I used my very first power tool. And Allen knew about it!)
All the ladies picked out a piece or two of scrapbook paper.
We modge podged the paper to the wood block.
Picked out some coordinating ribbons, fluffy yarn, and other decorative items to hot glue to the top.
Selected a button paper clip or modged podged our own binder clip to fancy it up. Sanded the back of it to rough it up a bit, and hot glued it to the block.
A precious way to display a photo! I am making lots of these for Christmas gifts. I think they will be perfect: a photo of the family displayed in a beautiful, handmade way. Let me know if you make these. I'd love to see pictures.
My table of happy crafters!
