Hello Beloveds! I am so excited to be sharing a little project with you guys today! It’s a super simple and cute way to get a little more life out of your printables.

I started with a block of 2×4 and sanded the edge. You can buy them already cut and sanded at the craft store or make your own. I painted mine a pretty pink.

Next, I cut out a hymnal girl. For this project I used Blest Be the Tie. I wanted a visual reminder to pray for and encourage my friends. I cut out the elements I wanted to use and used a little mod podge to adhere it. Then I stamped a verse underneath.

Finally, I added a few doodles to frame it out. Then I rubbed the edges with black ink and smudged a little citron gelato to finish it off.

There are a million ways you could personalize and modify this project. Stamps, glitter, embellishments… The sky’s the limit. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
