FCCB 191 - Anything but a Card, Holiday edition

Happy Monday!  It's time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!

Challenge #191 Anything but a card, Holiday ed.

Show us your holiday (non-card) projects. This could be holiday decor, tags, packaging and gift ideas...

I saw these blocks on Pinterest a while back, and I really liked this idea.  I decided to give it a try and create my own!

REVERSIBLE Give thanks Jingle bells block set. how cute!!

My sweetie helped me cut some spare 2x4 wood we had.  I cut two 6-inch blocks, two 7-inch blocks and three 8-inch blocks.  I used Mod Podge to adhere my pattern papers to the wood.  I also coated the paper with Mod Podge, to give it a little extra protection.

I cut my letters out of vinyl, then simply used transfer tape to place the letters on the blocks.  I sized my letters using Cricut Craft Room, playing around with the height and width a bit, so they would fit on my blocks.

Since I just got these blocks made, I didn't get to use the Give Thanks side this year.  They'll be stashed away and brought out next fall though!!
