One sheet with the 12 Apostles, Jesus and Mary. Great for celebrating the last supper, the institution of the Eucharist and Pentecost. Decoupage is easy! You can do this! Get blocks at a fraction of the price.
Each craft sheet has 14 unique images and descriptions of saints on each sheet. The images are copies of my original watercolor artwork. Each sheet is printed on regular office paper - it's the same kind of paper that I found is easiest to work with when decoupaging my blocks. They are laser printed exactly as I printed them for the decoupaged blocks I sold in my shop.
These saint craft sheets are just the right size for making crafts of your own and to share. They can be used to decoupage almost anything. Try making your own feast day decorations, holy cards, artwork, Christmas ornaments, blocks for your home altar or anything else you can come up with. Each sheet has 14 images and 14 descriptions of different saints. Each description includes the saint's name, feast day and patronage. I have also chosen a quote or a prayer to inspire little ones and the one that cleans up after them. I didn't just want the artwork to be cute, I wanted to give a tiny glimpse of the saint's inspiring story. It is so hard to choose just a few words for each of them, but I hope there is just enough information to be a reminder and an inspiration for further learning. I made my artwork to put on blocks for my own kiddos - they are meant to be beautiful, educational, inspirational and versatile (for tots, little kids, or big kids). Best of all they give the opportunity for prayerful play.
DO NOT SELL OR POST ONLINE PLEASE:
This artwork has taken me years to research and complete - please enjoy it and share it, but do not sell it or make digital copies. Thank you!
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN BLOCKS:
Each little image is approximately 1 1/8 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches tall. To make your own blocks I recommend using 1x2 trim pieces that can be found at your local hardware store. You will need to cut them into 3 inch lengths and sand them. 120 grit sand paper works great. I'd like to say it's tricky, but decoupaging images is so easy!!! Check online for all kinds of tips. I personally preferred to use water-based polyurethane when I decoupaged my blocks (it's what's commonly used on floors furniture and tables).
