Vintage Photo Block Art

We are sharing this project by Josie Jones - a vintage photo block. This great piece can easily sit on a shelf or table giving you variety from the photo gallery wall.

2×4 block of wood cut to size
Mod Podge
Sponge brush
Metal label holders 

 The first step is to select your clip art image and size it slightly smaller than the block of wood you are using {ie. for a 4×6 inch rectangle of wood, I would size my image to 3.5×5.5 inches}.  Cut out the clip art.  Next you will need to cut a section of 2×4 to your preferred size.  Sand the wood to get a smooth surface.

Paint the entire front of your block of wood with Mod Podge using your sponge brush.
Adhere the pre-cut clip art onto the block with the Mod Podge.  Use the heel of your hand to flatten out any bumps or bubbles. Mod Podge again over the book page. This step will give it a finished surface look.
{ Adding a metal label holder and label is optional.}
