The Snowman Jigsaw Blocks

When I was little my brother and I had a set of building blocks that when fitted together formed different pictures. I decided to make a similar item for Kai for Christmas.
I took 6 old building blocks and sanded them
I then painted the edges white just to ensure no colour peeped through when all was done.
I had a set of snowman papers that I cut each one to the size of the 6 cubes combined, & then each one into 6 to fit onto each cube.
I covered a side of a cube with pva glue and then stuck one of the pieces of paper on.
I repeated this with the same picture on the other 5 blocks.
I did this with the other 5 pictures and then covered them with glossy accents to seal them and hopefully prevent the paper from peeling or being knocked about so easily.

  6. What a great idea, I love this! :)
