Quote with Customized Family Name


We love this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley.  We love adding our own name to it!

To make, simply apply vinyl decal to a tile or wood plaque, or even straight onto a wall.  Similar instructions on how to do this can be found here.

Be Blocks - Pres. hinckley

We all love the Be's that President Hinckley taught us.  This craft was inspired from his words.

Here is how to make your Be Blocks:

1. Order the vinyl and/or the KIT from our website, here. (The kit includes three blocks)  Wood blocks come unsanded and unpainted.
2. Sand your blocks nice and smooth, rounding the edges. We used a palm sander - so much easier!
3. Paint your blocks. 
4. Let paint dry. When paint is dry, lightly sand blocks again, sanding more around the edges, so it gives it a roughed up look.
5. Apply vinyl lettering to your blocks before staining the wood.  If you try to apply vinyl after staining, it has a harder time sticking to your blocks. Make sure vinyl is securely pressed on wood all around.
6.  Stain blocks (wear rubber gloves). Even apply stain on top of vinyl - don't worry, it will wipe off.  Quickly wipe off excess stain with a paper towel. Let dry. (If applying vinyl on top of paper, stain wood before applying the paper).
8. Apply a THIN layer of mod podge over vinyl lettering.  (If you plan on stacking your blocks, DO NOT mod podge the tops/bottoms of the blocks or else they will stick to each other). Let dry.
9. All done!


**If you want paper as the background (as shown in the green blocks) paint blocks, stain blocks, then apply pieces of paper with spray adhesive {so you won't get wripples}.  This can be bought at most craft stores, and even Wal*Mart - the brand isn't important.  They all seem to work fine - I personally use the kind shown from the link on Amazon.  Then apply vinyl to paper, then use mod podge.

How to make a Glass Block

Making a Glass Block with a vinyl decal couldn't be easier!

Here's how:
1.  Buy a glass block.  You can find these at home improvement stores, and online.
2.  Order a vinyl decal from We Cut Vinyl.  Have fun with your decals - yes, black is the most popular, but look how great it looks in pink for a little girls room.  Be brave - order a color!!
3.  You can choose any design for your glass block: temples, wording, shapes, flowers, etc... If you don't see what you want on our website - EMAIL US!  We will make you a custom design.
4.  Be sure to order the CORRECT SIZE decal.  For example, if your glass block is 8 inches square - we recommend the 6.75" size.  If you have a rectangular glass block, DO NOT try putting a square graphic on it.  Order a design that is rectangular.  Email us if you need to see if a design that is square can be made to be rectangular.
5.  If you are drilling a hole in the back of your block for lights, do this before applying vinyl.  ONLY do this if you know what you are doing.  You need a diamond head drill bit, or a drill bit made for cutting glass.  Be sure to use water when drilling to help prevent glass from breaking.  Again - only do this if you know how, or seek a PROFESSIONAL'S help!!
6.  Apply vinyl decal.
7.  I sprayed the examples (in the picture) with frosting spray paint after applying vinyl.  I like how it looks when it is frosted.  This also helps hide the lights that are inside when they are not on.
8.  That's it!  Pretty simple, huh?
