Happy Spring! - Altered Word Blocks

Happy Spring! I hope you are having some nice weather on you side of the world. We are having some very nice weather for a change. It hasn't rained in a while but at least our flowers are starting to bloom and our seeds are beginning to sprout.

The nice weather gave me an itch to create something for our home so I decided I wanted to make some word blocks. I was originally inspired by the pretty blocks over at the The Little Blue House. Their trick is to make seasonless blocks and then make decorated tags for each season.

This time I made my own tags but I will sign up for future classes with them to make their tags and learn new techniques.

For this project I used DCWV and SEI papers, Spellbinders and Tim Holtz dies, some old KI Memories chipboard letters (I'm sure some of you still have these also), Twinery twine and a canvas butterfly. I made the flowers and the adorable Kite diecut is by 3Birds - so are the other embellishments.

So here is a video of my process. Enjoy!
