Create a Triptych. 3 Gorgeous Birch Wood Blocks.

It's been a long, crazy summer with lots of fun and lots of work mixed together. It seems that I haven't been as diligent about sharing all the new goodness here on blogland. Perhaps you haven't noticed because instead of being indoors reading blogs, you've been happily crafting or enjoying the great outdoors.

One of my favorite new products are these gorgeous solid wood blocks made from Birch. These measure 2.5" on the face and the sides are 1.25" thick with a pre-drilled hole on the back. They're ready to decorate and hang on a single nail. Each set contains 3 blocks. Not sure how to decorate these? It's simple: print your favorite photos, brush on Glamour Glue, press the block onto the glued surface and smooth with a burnisher for a bubble-free seal. Apply a weight to the top, like a stack of books or a clean jar of coins. Wait 15 minutes, turn upside down, trim along the edge to remove excess paper, and hang on your wall. So easy, and these blocks are only $8 for a set of 3!

The photos of the horses on these blocks were taken by my then 9 year old daughter.

Would love to try using these wood blocks. Do you sell them? If not, I would love to know where to purchase them.
