Joyful Mysteries Rosary Paper Craft Sheets. Two sets of the Joyful Mysteries come on one piece of paper. Prayers for each mystery come from the great Marian Saint, Louis de Montfort. You can make a set of blocks for yourself and a set as a gift, but please do not sell. Decoupaged blocks are quite durable, but they do not hold up to drooling or chewing. For baby resistant blocks you can purchase some of the blocks I sell in my shop: www.etsy.com/listing/754767303/5-rosary-blocks-glorious-mysteries
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 printed exactly as I printed them for the decoupaged blocks I sold in my shop so there will be no smearing or smudging at all. No blocks are included.
These saint craft sheets 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. 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. My goal is to design Catholic artwork that is appealing and accessible for children, but that also has rich historicity and symbolism that adults will love too!
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 sandpaper 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).
Don't have time to make your own? Check out mine! They look and feel very professional, and they are water resistant. www.almondrod.etsy.com
