HERITAGE BLOCKS - ROCK!
There are soooo many great things about Heritage Blocks. Here are my TOP THREE...
1. 100% Toddler/Kid-Proof - That's right! Kids can play with them and see and learn about their family too - building heritage, block by block.
2. No Frames Needed - The low cost of the print, block and adhesive is it! No fancy frames are additional costs. These attractive blocks are a great way showcase family, story, memories and legacies.
3. Great Gift for ANYONE - No matter the person or age, Heritage Blocks are a fantastic gift that they will LOVE! Just choose or create your own design and adhere them to the blocks. Now you have a beautiful gift that will be a huge hit!
Instructions for Making Heritage Blocks:
Cut a standard 2x4 into smaller blocks then I created a template with custom vintage patterns to give the blocks a unified look. We added the photos and text then sent off to print! Kate cut the pieces out and modge-podged them onto the blocks. The Heritage Makers template I created has 2 tall blocks on one 12x12 printed page and 3 square blocks on one 12x12 printed page. You can make the whole set of 5 blocks for less than $15 - that includes the template, printing and materials!

Jill's Story (Template Design By Jill Means)
Here are the "heritage blocks" I created about my grandparents. My sister-in-law, Kate and I wanted to feature my grandparents in our homes, but we didn't really want to take up wall space with framed photos. We created these blocks instead. You can put them on a table, shelf, or wall ledge. People can pick them up and read them, kids can even play with them.
