Spring Blocks with Tutorial

Here is the tutorial!

Supplies Needed

6 wood blocks, differing in sizes.
6 coordinating pieces of scrapbook paper
2 sheets of lighter color scrapbook paper for your letters. I just used white.
Mod Podge
Hot Glue

Step 1: Cut out your blocks and sand them.

S: 9 x 5 1/2"
P: 6 x 3 1/2"
R: 7 x 5 1/2"
I: 3 1/4 x 4"
N: 5 x 3 1/2"
G: 4 1/2 x 3 1 /4"

Step 2: Paint your blocks. For these blocks I used antique white. I like it because it isn't stark white and it has a little bit of a yellow undertone.

Step 3: While your blocks are drying, cut out your paper to fit the size of each of your blocks.
these are the sizes of paper for my blocks

Step 4: After your blocks are dry, apply a thin layer of mod podge to the FRONT of your blocks and apply your paper. Make sure you flatten it out really well so you don't get any bubbles.
