Simple Holiday Project: Paper Covered Word Blocks

I have a couple very small, simple projects I've been wanting to put together this season. The first is this set of paper covered blocks. I received the blocks as part of a Jenni Bowlin project kit this past August. You can see that project here. The blocks are from Creative Imaginations and available here

Using a glue stick and 6-8 different patterned papers punched with a 1.5 inch square punch I covered each side of the block and then used Christmas Red Stickles to draw the words and the E09 (I drew them just using the tip of the Stickles bottle). Kids could definitely participate in this project by adhering the papers to the blocks. 

Here's a close-up look at the Stickles: 


And a look at the sides: 


I didn't use Mod Podge or any sort of sealant on top of the papers because some of the papers I used had texture (flocking and glitter). 

I like projects like this that are super simple (or can be more involved if you want to add more elements) and that come out just during this special time of year. 


Remember this project? I pulled out this little 7gypsies Night Before Christmas spinner project that I started back in 2007 - I am hoping to finish it up this year. The ATC spinners are still available here if you are interested in starting one of these for yourself (great way to use up holiday products). 

Hoping to post later today with more of my December Daily pages.
