You and Me Block (Guest Post: Ginger Snap Crafts!

Valentines Day is just around the corner! 
But there is still time to make a cutie-patootie craft
like this You & Me block from Ginger Snap Crafts!


Hi! I'm Ginger, & I blog over at Ginger Snap Crafts.
Here I am with my crazy family! ha! :)
My blog is a fun place where I share my cute & easy craft projects, ideas & recipes.
I would love to have YOU drop by sometime.

Today I'd love to show you how to make
this cute {you & me} Valentine block.

 
You'll need:
mod podge
(Never mind the spray adhesive...I didn't end up using it for this project.)
Valentine scrapbook paper
paper cutter
paint
ribbon
vinyl lettering
5X7 inch wood block (painted pink)
oval wood plaque (painted white)
(I found my plaque at Walmart for $1.00.)

First cut your scrapbook paper to fit your wood block. 

Then mod podge your scrapbook paper onto your wood block.  Let dry.

I used Elmer's glue to glue my oval wood plaque onto the wood block.

Then I applied my vinyl lettering.  
(For more detailed vinyl lettering instructions you can click here.) 
FYI:  "You" was cut using Hiccups font, 
the "&" was cut using High Tower Text font 
and the "me" was cut using Monster Paparazzi font.

Then I tied a red ribbon around my block. 

There you go!  Super easy & cute!  

For more cute & easy projects please visit my blog.
I also have a fun link party on Wednesdays!
Would LOVE to see what YOU have been up to!

Thank you for having me over, Holly!
