By now you know my fondness for including typography in our home. I have made Number Wall Art, Decorative Spheres, an Art Globe, and more DIY projects to bring in the fun of typography to our living spaces. I used my new PSA Essentials stamps to create some personalized typographic décor that was so easy to make.
To make Stamped Typography Blocks, you will need:
paper cutter or scissors
PSA Essentials stamps and inks
Dremel with sanding attachment or sandpaper
I found these blocks at Goodwill a year or so ago. WHY, HELLO, KERCHIEF-WEARING GOOSE! You could also cut scrap wood into 3”x3” cubes if you can’t find blocks to use.
I gave the blocks a quick facelift using some paint samples from Glidden in colors that coordinate with our living room (Almost Aqua, Spanish Olive, Bittersweet Chocolate) .
Much better, I think. Next, I cut squares of dictionary pages to fit each side of the three cubes. I used the Vanilla Peel & Stick sets for these blocks and stamped the letters with plain black ink. Each cube has the first initial of each family member, our last initial, and an ampersand on the 6 sides. Then I used Paper Mod Podge to glue the dictionary pages in place. Finally I roughed up the edges using the sanding attachment on my Dremel.
Don’t you think this would be a cute gift for a new home?
