America "Wood" Blocks

Tracy here from the Idea Closet and today is my turn to share on the SVG Attic.
If you are still looking for a fun Patriotic project I have the perfect one for you today.

These blocks look like wood blocks but they are 100% paper and so easy to do.

The file is from the JGW July 4th Block Party Kit and if you haven't seen it yet you need to check it out.

JGW July 4th Block Party

There are so many fun projects in this kit, I wasn't sure where to begin but my favorite is the America Blocks.

I cut all of my blocks from a brown cardstock and then inked them up a lot to give it a wood look.
To create the panels, just do an offset (silhouette) or a small square (Cricut) and glue to the front of each block.

Cut two copies of the letters.  Glue one to the front of the box and then layer the second letters with foam pop dots.

Add some twine and its all done.

Enjoy your beautiful "wood" blocks!


  1. Okay, I LOVE what you did with those blocks! Making the look like wood and then using the different patterned papers on the was genius!

  2. Nicely done. Much more interesting that my one-color original. (There is a "face plate" offset front panel square for each of the blocks included in the file, so you don't have to re-create your own, just FYI.)
