Photo Blocks

This is a fun craft and great Christmas gift! We did it in the throws of Strep Throat because it was a no-brainer activity... my kids seem to love those because I don't freak out about the details!

You will need
Wood blocks (mine are just chunks of 4x4's, but 2x2 is great too)
Sand paper
Scrapbook paper
Modge Podge
Paint brush or sponge

1. Soften the wood grain and edges with a light pass over of sand paper
2. Cut pictures and scrapbook paper to fit the size of your blocks (2 paper & 4 pictures)
3. Paint Modge Podge on one side of the block
4. Paste a picture or paper
5. Repaint the Modge Podge over the picture
6. Allow to dry for an hour before finishing the other sides (I found I could do three sides, dry, do the other three sides)

Voila!!! Merry Christmas "someone"!

7. Rough up the edges with sand paper and dab paint of them if you want them to look antiqued.
