Decor Blocks Day 1

Notice these blocks? Did you even know they were available for purchase in the catalog? Did you overlook them? Did you ever wonder what to do with them? Keep reading:

For the next 4 days, I will be showing you what I did with them for my home.

Today is Day #1, Side #1:

I decorated 4 sides of the blocks so that they are interchangeable according to holidays. This side is the non-holiday side. Here is a close-up of the word H-O-M-E:

How cute is that? I decided not to use side 5 & 6 because of all the bling and layers. My blocks would become wobbly on the underside. I will list the supplies I use each day for each individual side.

Today's supplies:
  • Stamp Set: Day of Gratitude
  • Inks: Pacific Point, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake
  • Cardstock: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Early Espresso
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Serif Essentials Alphabet Dies, Stampin' Dimensionals, Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder
  • Accessories: Pearl Jewels
