Decor Element Blocks

I decided to give alot of handmade Christmas gifts this year - mainly because we are trying to spend less and save more in preparation for our little one's arrival in approximately 10 weeks.

These blocks can be found in the SU! Holiday Mini and will be available in the Occasions Mini in the spring as well. I love them! They are 3" square and super easy to decorate. I bought several sets of these and completed the first set last night. I chose to use the SU! DSP Sweet Always from a previous catalog as I thought it would be perfect for my 2 year old niece. Each block uses the same 4 designs from the DSP assortment as well as chocolate chip cardstock.
I decorated each letter/block with a different element using ribbon on the first letter, the scallop edge punch on the second...
a flower shaped button on the third and both sizes of the corner punch on the last.
I am very pleased with how they turned out. I sure hope she likes them :) Stay tuned for future posts as I continue to make handmade Christmas gifts for friends and family.
