- 3 x scrap wood. Measure accordingly to the size that fits the words you want to use
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Cotton
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Soft Pink
- IOD Decor Stamp – Typesetting
- 120 grit sandpaper
- glue gun
- coordinating ribbon
- Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint – Best Dang Wax – Clear
- Wax Brush
- Black Ink
- Grid Thin Mount
Step 1 – Work out what words you would like on your blocks. For these 3 I chose “love”, “cherish” and “be mine”. Lay them out onto your blocks and move letters accordingly to make sure they fit nicely on the wood.
Step 2 – Using your brush paint 2 of the blocks in Cotton and 1 in Soft Pink. Let dry and give another coat.

Step 3 – Line up your letters on your signs, stamp facing down. To fit all the stamps on, I placed the lower case from the Typesetting Stamp at all different heights.
HANDY HINT: If this is the first time using your IOD Stamp use 120 grit sandpaper to go over your stamp to open the pores up of the stamp to get a nice crisp image.
Step 4 – To help to line your word back onto your sign use the grid thin mount to pick up your stamps. Be sure to leave a space for any letters you need to double up with. Press firmly to make sure you pick them all up.
Load your brayer up with ink and apply to your word. Line up your grid thin mount and using one hand hold your word in place on your sign and press over the word with your fingers. Repeat until all your words are stamped onto your signs.
HANDY HINT: Don’t press super hard on the stamp otherwise you will create a blurred image. If it is your first time using stamps practice on a scrap piece of wood until you get used to stamping.
Step 5 – Fill in all the gaps with the extra letters. Let completely dry and wax to seal using your wax brush.
Step 6 – Make a messy bow using your ribbon. Cut 2 of each colour and then layer them on top of each other. Tie them all together in the centre.
Step 7 – Using your glue gun glue your messy bow onto your pink sign. And now its time to decorate.

Sam these are adorable. I always have a stack of trim ends that I save just in case. These little blocks are so fun, and the perfect size to sneak in to a corner at home, or even the office cubicle. Pinning.
