Hi! It's Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts.com. I back to share another fun tutorial with you. I am so excited for spring to be here! I can’t wait! :) Even though it is still a little bit cold (It snowed last week!) I wanted to bring some spring into our home. These Bloom Spring Blocks were just the pop of color & happy that I needed. So keep reading to see how easy these were to make with my Silhouette & some fun vinyl from Happy Crafters. I’ll also show you how to layer vinyl. It’s easy! So let’s get started! :)
• wood blocks*
• white paint
• vinyl (geyser blue, beige, dahlia red, pastel orange, white & olive)
• washi tape paper
• circle punch
• this image from the Silhouette online store
*For my wood I just used some scrap blocks that I found in my craft stash. The smaller blocks were just 2x4s cut into blocks & the bigger block was a 2x6 cut into a block. You can make these as big or small as you need to, & then you can size the vinyl as needed in your Silhouette software. :)
Then I put the stem & the leaves on. Notice how I put my stems on first behind the leaves.
Then I put the white vinyl circle in the middle of my flowers.
I still thought it needed a little something. So I added a yellow polka dotted washi tape circle right over the vinyl. I just used some washi paper & a circle punch to make the circle. You could also use patterned vinyl.
Do you have any fun spring inspired projects in the works?
I’d love to hear. Leave a comment below. :)
