Darling Paper Crafted Baby Blocks

By: Rebekah Meier for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

This craft would make a unique handmade baby shower decoration or look super cute adorning a baby nursery.  Easy to make using a foam base, these baby blocks are crafted from adorable papers.

Papercrafted Baby Decor Blocks

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cubes, 3", three
  • Acrylic paints: dark pink; light green
  • Papier-mâché letters, 1": B, A, B, Y
  • Card stock, one 12" x 12" sheet each: pink; light green
  • Coordinating scrapbook papers, three assorted 12" x 12" sheets
  • Embellishments of choice: small white buttons; mini rick rack; baby-themed buttons
  • Water basin
  • Pencil
  • Green polka dot grosgrain ribbon, 1/2" x 3/8 yard
  • Flat paintbrush, Medium
  • Disposable palette
  • Ruler
  • Paper towels
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Low temperature glue gun and glue sticks
  • White, thick craft glue
     

Note: If blocks will be handled by young children, leave off embellishments that might present a choking hazard. Blocks are intended for decor, not toys.

Steps:

  1. Cut four 3" x 12" strips from pink card stock; cut two from green card stock.
     
  2. Wrap two same-color strips in opposite directions around one foam cube to cover foam surface; do not glue yet. Firmly crease paper at cube corners; remove and crisply fold paper. Wrap and glue paper strips around cubes.
     
  3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 using coordinating scrapbook papers, if desired.
     
  4. Cut six 2" squares from card stock, two per block. Cut six 2 1/2" squares from scrapbook papers, if desired. Mat smaller squares on larger squares and adhere to front and back of block.
     
  5. Paint B-A-B-Y letters, paint Bs dark pink and remaining letters light green; let dry. Glue letters to front and back of blocks as desired.
     
  6. Refer to photo to complete each block, adding ribbon and desired embellishments.
