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.

Here's what you'll need to gather:

Paint Your Letters
Lightly sand your Letter Press Blocks
Give the surface a quick sanding with some fine sand paper.

Craft Paint and Letter Press Blocks
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.
