Baby Blocks

Hi everyone, Happy Friday!  I’m excited to be back to share another fun project for Craftwell.

This month we are featuring products from Avery Elle and I want to show you a fun project created using their Alphas Clear Stamp Set and Alphas Elle-ments Dies.  I thought it would be fun to make some cute little Baby Blocks.  The blocks open as a gift box so you could add a few little surprises inside for the new “Mom to be” if you wanted.  Wouldn’t this make a really cute baby shower gift?

Here is a closer look at the products I used:

Avery’s Alphas Clear Stamps
Avery’s Alphas Elle-ments Die
Gold Majesty Circles
Kraft and Solid Color Card stock
Jillibean Soup Southern Chicken Dumpling Soup Paper Collection

EB-WHT-BN1-2T

If you would like to try your hand at this project, this is how I made it:

Start by making 4 cubes.  Mine are 2″ square and there are a ton of free tutorials and cut files out there.  Once you have your cubes made, cover each side in a piece of designer paper and finish with a die cut from the Gold Majesty Circles collection.  For the letters I used the Avery Alphas Clear Stamps and matching die and I love how this turned out.

I hope to see you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
