Ninety percent of the time I craft a card or gift for someone outside my immediate family, but I sure love crafting for/with my kids the other 10% of the time! And that is what I am sharing with y’all today…a fun and colorful craft project with an early childhood learning spin.
In Silhouette Studio, I resized the shape to fit an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet and added individual letter cutouts to each side of the cube. Once cut by my Silhouette CAMEO, I peeled off the newly cut cardstock from the mat. Then, I folded along each perforated line and glued it together using Tombow Mini Liquid Glue.
Next, I cut 1.75″ square cardstock pieces from three vibrant colors: Pop-Tone in Razzleberry, Pop-Tone in Blue Raspberry, Astrobright in Solar Yellow. These colored pieces would go behind each letter cutout on the block and secured with Tombow glue.
By using the cutout as a stencil, I was able to determine the placement of each inner piece.
I love the contrast between the bright white and colored cardstock. It’s a good reminder for me as a paper crafter that sometimes less is more. The simplicity of combining two colors can make a striking and beautiful appearance.
Move over classic wooden alphabet blocks, both my kids and I are in love with these colorblock blocks! If you love them too, save this DIY project to your Pinterest board!
