Tuesday's Daily Project for Exploring Cricut

Today I have the daily project for Exploring Cricut and I created Fall blocks to decorate my mantle using the cartridge Cricut Alphabet that came with the new Expression 2 machine. I love this alphabet because it looks so elegant. The directions for this project are under the pictures. Be sure to stop by Exploring Cricut daily for new projects and join our challenge this week!

I had my husband cut wood blocks 3.5 x 4 x 1 inch and sand really good so that we had no rough edges. I based coated with brown paint and let dry. I cut paper to fit each block, front and back.

The paper I used was from a $1.00 package we picked up at Target last year and I used Modge Podge to adhere the paper to the wood block. A good tip I found was to lightly apply a coat of Modge Podge to your paper front first and let dry and it really helps keep the bubbles down. I then cut the Cricut Alphabet uppercase on the font 3 button at 3 inches. I cut it from brown cardstock and attached with Modge Podge. I also cut some small leaves to add to the corners around the letters. You can do these blocks for any occassion or holiday.
