Easy Teacher Gifts for Valentine's Day

Oh how I love making these blocks! Monday night I made them with some of my Sunday school friends at church and we had the best time! Hobby Lobby in three different area stores was sold out of blocks! They had to wonder what was going on!
This set is for one of my daughter's teachers at school. I love the red and pink combined and the hint of glitter. I'm telling you that glitter spray paint is the greatest invention in my craft room! Her other teacher is getting this set. My daughter loves to blow kisses complete with the big loud drawn out "mwah" sound. So, this one is oh so appropriate!The crackled paper and brown stained edging made these the perfect amount of vintage!


Next up, I want to make blocks with black and white pictures of my family! Can you think of anything else I should be "blocking"? Do share!

Sad I missed the craft night, but am looking forward to trying this out on some big blocks with Cora's name. Love the picture idea, too!!
