Following my rules, I can't purchase anything for my projects. I have to only use what I already have on hand. So, I gathered my blocks, some pictures, modge-podge, a paint brush, and a paper cutter.
For my pictures, I used some old cards I had. They had gorgeous pictures on the one side, and a great saying/quote on the other. I purchased them YEARS ago and thought they were too great not to have. Well, as great as they were, they remained in the pocket pouch they were purchased in.
Next, I placed just one of the pictures on my blocks to see what the best fit would be. I found that the cards were just a bit bigger than 2x3 blocks.
I did this with 6 seperate pictures. Then I cut each picture into 1 1/8 inch squares.
Using my paintbrush, I generously brushed modge-podge onto just one side of my block.
I brushed a layer of modge podge on top of the picture and did the same with the remaining 5 blocks (using the squares from the same picture).
I have done this project using scrapbook paper and the pictures on the back of calendars (they were about 2x2 in size). Whatever you have works.
There you have it! Recycled block project. Can't wait to see what's next.
