"Gobble til ya Wobble!"

 I was checking out Pinterest during my daily allotted visit (I have to limit myself to just once ;) and came across these adorable wooden blocks and thought I have to make them! 

My hubby had some scrap wood from another project laying round in the garage carefully organized in his workspace.  I showed him the pin and he cut the wood down to blocks that wood fit into a space on top of our t.v. armoire.  While my boys were napping, I used my acrylic paint dauber to paint the top and sides as well as about 1/2 inch border on the front of the block.  While that dried, I cut out my scrapbook paper.  I used scraps of paper from other projects.  To attach the scrapbook paper, I applied a strip of adhesive from my Tombow tape runner so that I could readjust the paper if I needed to.  Then, I used a foam brush to apply Mod Podge under and over the paper.  I allowed that to dry for about 15 minutes.  While I waited, I used my Calligraphy cartridge to cut the letters out.  I love this cartridge.  There are so many font options.  I cut "Gobble" out with one and "til ya wobble" out with another.  To attach the letters, I lightly brushed a layer of Mod Podge on, applied the letter and then applied another light coat of Mod Podge to the entire front side of the block.

Here are a couple of pics:

My hubby was so impressed with how quickly and easily we re-purposed these scraps of wood!

Coming soon....baby shower and baby sprinkle invites and party supplies :)
