It started as an idea for Sherri...

On Saturday, I was at the Mapunapuna BFC helping them out with the Bag Sale. In the Paperarts dept., I was showing Sherri A. how this one paper from pebbles inc's Twitterpated collection would be great for a wood block project. So, we agreed Sherri should make one.

Well, we wanted swirly wires on top so that we could hold photos or cards. Naturally, we thought Lynn H. would make it the best, so I took the project over to the Bead shoppe. Lynn was eager to help with the swirlies!

To make one is really fast and easy. You paint the block edges with some paint. Use some wood knobs for feet. Cut out some squares from the paper and glue them to the block. Here's some of the supplies...

Twist two colors of thick Londy wire together and shape into swirls or hearts.Use the drill to make a nice hole for the wire at the top of the block. Glue the wire in. All Pau!

Ok, so what really happened is Lynn ended up making the whole project all by herself! Isn't it really cute!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a great week!
