My Other Creations: Quote Blocks

"Get in Shape" is this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme.  Fortunately, that does not involve doing lunges and push-up's (unless you want to incorporate that).  The theme really means to create something in a 3D shape, for example.  I made these quick and easy quote blocks, which are a great alternative if you're running low on wall space.

I kid you not about these things being quick and easy.  I pulled some wooden blocks from my stash and cut out patterned-paper squares, which I glued to the blocks.  It's even easier if you have square punches that fit the size you need.  Once I glued the paper on, I blended the paper edges into the blocks with white paint.

I typed up some of my favorite quotes using my We R Memory Keepers typewriter and glued those on to my blocks.

All the patterned paper I used coordinated so that I could display these all in one "power tower" or individually here and there.  These make great gifts, too, and I plan on giving some of these to my friends (hint: you can usually find out some of your friends' favorite quotes by stalking them on Pinterest)!

Here are the supplies I used, which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
