Rock the Block

Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days. My MIL is visiting from Wisconsin and we’ve been busy entertaining her. *Ü*

I did have some time to finish my Rock the Block Cube Game, so I thought I would share it with you today. I used the fabulous Close to my Heart promotional Cubes and coordinating stamp set to make this fun tic-tac-toe/puzzle game with some family photos. My kids were playing with it before I even finished making it, so I know it will be a big hit in our house now that it’s finished. LOL!

I cut (4) 6" x 6" photos into 2" x 2" squares and adhered them to the blocks.

You can see the base of the cubes here.

I wanted to cut some Xs and Os with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to make it into a tic-tac-toe game, so I after cutting them out, I decide to add them to the blocks with a fun border. I love the borders that come in the Rock the Block set, so instead of masking them, which would have been totally easy to do, I actually cut the inside of the stamp out and just used the outline. I stamped the border on some 2" x 2" pieces of Roxie paper and then adhered them to the blocks. I also used some Roxie paper for the base of the blocks. This was actually a pretty quick project to make and I know it will provide hours of fun for my kiddos (and me!)
