Bottle Caps and wooden letter press blocks make a sweet, simple handmade baby shower gift
Handmade gifts are so heartfelt... and often labors of love, meaning they take hours and hours to create. You'll most likely be finished with this one in less than 60 minutes. It's easy! And the finished product is one that you'd be proud to present at any baby shower.
ZZZ Letter Press Block Supplies
Here's what you'll need to gather:
- 5" Letter Press Blocks - Choose Your Word
- Bottle Caps - Choose Your Color(s), I used Two Sided White .
- Scrap Paper, Craft Paint, Fine Sand Paper
Paint Your Letters
Give the surface a quick sanding with some fine sand paper.
A sponge brush works great for this project.
If you don't want to distress your letters I recommend using either Alcohol Ink or Vintaj Patina Inks. The Patina Inks are made for metal but they work beautifully on the blocks. These paints adhere cleaner and stronger than craft paint. Also, a little bit goes a long way.
Seal 'Em With Mod Podge
Apply a thin layer with a sponge brush.
Create Your Bottle Cap Design
There are lots of possibilities with scrap papers and paper word cuts, or choose from our selection of bottle cap images.
I sealed my bottle cap design with a thick layer of 3D Crystal Laquer.
