"Christmas" blocks. $5 vinyl; $3 wood (2x3 wood). $18 finished.
"Joy" blocks- $2.00 vinyl; $1.00 wood (2x4 wood); $6 finished. I've also made a photo block here. It would be $1 for the wood for it; $5 finished. You can make this by staining your block, adding patterned paper with mod podge, then use clear photo corners so that pictures can be easily taken on and off, and add ribbon. What a cute (and inexpensive) gift!
