{photo blocks}

I love this project--the sky is the limit! I bought a piece of lumber---2x6x10---at Home Depot. I had them cut it into 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 pieces, as many as it would do (the width if the lumber is about 1/2 inch less than what it indicates, so even though my lumber was 6 inches wide, technically it was 5 1/2 inches wide). I routered them at home, with an angled bit. Then I sanded, painted, re-sanded for the distressed look, and stained (my favorite is Minwax's Provincial). After the stain was set, I mod podged my picture on. I first put a little bit on the back of the picture, then set it in place. I gently used my foam brush to add small amounts of mod podge on the picture and beveled edges. Only use enough to make it adhere--too much can cause air bubbles. You can use 4x6 pics or 5x7 pics, depending on how far away (5x7) or close up (4x6) the picture is. I cropped mine to be about 4 1/2 inches. After the mod podge has dried, tie a ribbon around the sides and top, or around the lower middle. These also make great gifts--

What color stains did you use? I have a lot of 5x5 pics that I didn't know what to do with. I think that I will put them in my Christmas tree.
