Mod Podge

My Grandmother turned 99 years old on the 18th of this month and we were all getting together to throw her a party. What do you get a person who is turing 99 years old? I had no idea. Then I remembered that I had downloaded a templete last Christmas called Heritage Blocks.

I went to Michaels and bought a block. I had to wipe out my coupons because $8.00 for a piece of block is too expensive for me! I then sawed it to the templates measurements, also painted and sanded the edges of each blocks.

I was ready to Mod Podge my blocks. So easy!! But before I did that I had used distressed ink around the edges of each print to give it that antique look.

Here is an AMAZING video from How Does She on how to Mod Podge blocks.

Here is my first attempt at Mod Podge.

Now put it in a box.

Wrap it up pretty and ready to give!
