Puzzle Blocks

While my husband and a friend were installing our new kitchen sink and faucet, I was upstairs crafting away. I found these awesome little wooden blocks at the Scrap Exchange some weeks ago. I didn't have any ideas at the moment but at 10 cents each, I knew could eventually come up with something. So here you go: Puzzle Blocks! I originally thought to make some Brown Bear Brown Bear Blocks but there are more animals that sides to the blocks, though I still used the blue horse.

1. Measure the total length and width for the block. Mine were 1 in. blocks so the whole panel was 2in. x 3 in. Find some pictures, shrink to fit the panel and print. I originally had the idea to have family pictures on there but there aren't 6 of us......yet!

2. After printing, on the back, draw your grid so you know where to cut. 3. After your pieces are cut, get the mod podge and start gluing. I used a matte finish mod podge as opposed to the glossy kind. Glue the picture on the block then do one coat over the picture. Allow Each side to dry before starting on another side.

You could even make some silly animals. This was a really easy project that I finished in about 2 hours. Finding and sizing pictures to print is what took the longest. These are alittle too old for Isaac but I though our friend, (who was downstairs until midnight working on the sink) his daughter would really like them. She's older than Isaac. So there you go, created and gifted all in one night!

Hope you like them Isabelle!
