Special Ops: Storybook Houses

It's no secret that I love to pickup something for nothing and turn it into a masterpiece. These items were found at an after Christmas sale for 50 cents!
~ Storybook Houses ~
Today's technique changes Primitive Country Christmas décor into vibrant, jewel-toned Storybook Houses.
Step 1:
Trace the outline of the block or house onto paper.
Step 2:
Cut out the shape and trim to fit. 

Step 3:
Stamp and heat emboss a design on to the paper.
Step 4:
Paint or color the image then adhere the paper to the block.
I used my mists and a small paint brush.
The embossed lines kept the colors from merging.
Step 5:
Wrap the edges with washi tape.
Paint the top and sides of the block with Mod Podge.
I used three layers of Mod Podge on my blocks.
