Pinch Me- St. Patrick's Day Blocks!


It's official- I am obsessed with GREEN!  I don't even celebrate St. Paddy's Day, but I just love all these Green decorations!  

Yesterday I came home from school and needed to do something crafty, so I made these cute and EASY Pinch Me Blocks!  

These are just a 2 x 4 cut into chunks, then I measured the blocks before I cut out the letters with my Cricut.  


First I painted my blocks with Americana Sour Apple {my favorite!} paint.

After it was dry, I chose some paper I had on hand, that had lots of green it it!  I got this paper at Micheal's or you can get it at most craft stores. 

I cut the paper in squares a bit smaller than the wood, then adhered it with  

After the Mod Podge was dry, I added another layer of Mod Podge on top of the paper.  When that was dry, I added the vinyl.  

Then, I sanded around all the edges for that shabby distressed look:)  


EASY!!  It made these in about 1 hour {with drying time} and it was with everything I already had on hand.  

 
 See that cute printable next to the blocks?  You can get that here.  

Have a FABULOUS day and be sure and stop by tomorrow for another FRIDAY FROLIC Linky Party!!
