Summer blocks

 We can’t totally claim rights to these fun blocks.  A darling friend, Kristen, from church takes the award for creativity…dontcha just adore the banner on the “S” – it matches the background on the first “M”…such cute details.  Anyway, we provided vinyl for this project at our church craft night and wanted to share the  with you. 
This is a super easy tutorial, even a beginner crafter can handle it as the pics are pretty self-explanitory (:
