Option 1 - Tutorial for our christmas in heaven blocks

with stencil wording plaques

Hi crafters! many of you wanted some tips and advice on the difference between our etched wording plaques and the stencil cut wording plaques on the Christmas in heaven blocks. We have put together a video of me completing some using the stencil cut ones as a stencil and also photos and a step by step guide. 

You can also use the stencil plaques another way and I will be doing a follow up blog post to show you so do keep an eye out! Also see my other blog post on the etched wording plaques
