I teased about the Boo blocks in my other tutorial so I had to make them! I did not use the paper I said I was going to use though. I used the BoBunny paper. Here are some pictures of how to make these blocks.

Start with 3 blocks of wood. Mine are 5 x 3.25 and about 1.5 inches thick. I got the piece of wood at Home Depot, they cut it down for me, and then I brought them home and sanded them. I then painted them with a glossy black paint.

I glue down my solid cardstock. I used a green from my stash.

Then layered over my BoBunny printed paper.

I added the orange cardstock and striped papers down the left side of each block and added a 7 Gypsies word strip.

Then I cut letters with my Cricut, ran them through my Cuttlebug, and glued them to the blocks.

Next I took the BoBunny stickers, trimmed them a bit to fit better on the blocks, and adhered them with pop dots. Then added Kaiser bling to the blocks for a little extra oomph!

So here are the finished blocks:


They are really simple and so fun to make. I get together with my girlfriends and we have a blast putting them together. We actually gave this set to a good friend that didn't make our first set with us and she LOVED them!!! We have made red, white, and blue USA blocks for the 4th, FALL, BOO, HOME, JOY, and HO HO HO so far. We are teaching a class in 2 weeks to a group of ladies and we will be making JOY and Ho Ho Ho there. Should be fun!
