We're happy to have Cassity back again sharing tips and tricks for working with the beautiful downloads from our dear friends at Caravan Shoppe. Be sure to scroll down for a little discount, too!
Caravan Shoppe is at it again. We love their Olliblocks and now they’ve just released an Easter set! The set includes 3 boys, 3 girls, and 6 animals and is full of springy designs. The hedgehog has to be our favorite. Not only are these fabulous toys, but they also make darling decorations. Of course you can mix and match them with the other Olliblocks sets as well.
They also have a new Easter Draw Together set. This includes 5 giant printable posters, a giant table covering, 4 placemat designs as well as an egg garland and bunny masks. These are perfect for decorating Easter eggs, an Easter egg hunt or any Easter celebration!
Right now our lives are a little crazy so this FREE printable quote seems especially appropriate.
We couldn’t resist making our own set of Easter blocks.
First you’ll need to purchase 1.5” or 2” cubes. Personally, we prefer the 2”. Caravan Shoppe recommends Woodworks Ltd. (which is www.craftparts.com). In our experience they have been helpful and easy to work with. You can order the 2” blocks here.
Next, you need to print your design. You can print on regular paper, or label paper – however, label paper will save you the step of gluing the pictures to the cubes.
Trim your designs and gather your cubes, modge podge and a brush. We’ve used a couple of different kinds of modge podge but the hard finish (purple bottle) seems to work best.
Stick the pictures to the cubes. There will be a slight border all of the way around so line things up accordingly.
Last, apply a thin coat of modge podge to your blocks, let it dry, and voila! You’re done!
These work up quickly and make great gifts! For additional information here is the official how-to from Caravan Shoppe.
