These were last year's Christmas presents! I took wood blocks (my friend so nicely cut them for me!) Spray painted a primer on them, and painted them. Then I took my big square punch and punched out patterned paper for each side of each block. Then I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper to each side of the blocks. Finally, I used my alphabet stamps and stamped out messages and used my smaller square punch to punch those out and adhered them with Mod Podge as well! I used matte finish Mod Podge, and I would also sand the bottom of each block when you are done so they don't stick:) Very cost efficient presents, I would recommend doing it!
