Reversible Holiday Blocks!

I been wanting to make some letter blocks with the extra scrap wood we had in the garage, and I finally completed a set.

And the best part about these blocks is that they are reversible!

Why make 2 separate sets for the Holidays when I only need 1 set of reversible holiday blocks.  Saves time and space!

I started by cutting a 2 x 4 board down to random sizes.

I used Minwax Color Express in onyx to stain the outside edges of the blocks.  This product is great in that it is a water based product, which means easy clean up and low order.  It is a wiping stain and sealer in one.

While the stain was drying, I cut out the sizes of my paper.  I also used Cameron (Silhouette Cameo) to cut out my vinyl letters.

I transferred the letters on to the scrapbook paper and sealed the paper unto the wood blocks with  Mod Podge.  I like to use 2 coats of Mod Podge to seal my projects.

I loved how these turned out and I will be making some more.  I will be trying out the other colors from Minwax color express.
