Christmas Blocks



I made these blocks to go on my table at the 'evening gala' I'm doing next month. I figured I'd aim to make more Christmas stuff as most people seem to be starting to think along those lines by now.

They're 2in blocks from Opitec, which I have given a couple of coats of white acrylic paint. I've used papers from a 6x6 Christmas pack, but I can't remember which brand - I'll try to remember to look next time I go to the craft shop and update later. I stamped the letters using the Plain Jane alphabet stamp set from See D's in white with white embossing powder. I wasn't completely happy with how they turned out, which I think is because of the ink... it was a bit patchy. These were glued on with PVA, and once they were dry I used a snowblock (like those used in nail bars) to sand the edges. They're finished off with a layer of acrylic sealer.

Thanks for looking
