Cricut Crop Friday - Countdown To...Whatever!

Everyone seems to be making these Countdown things. So I jumped on the bandwagon!
I decided to make mine universal.
Now we can use it for anything exciting that we have coming up.
I started with two blocks (I cut mine from a 4x4 post) and a 2x4.
I painted a rough coat of white over the wood.

I cut all my paper to fit within the sides of my
blocks and them using Mod Podge I glued them down.

Here we are all done.
TIP: Try to use papers that go well together. I used a line of paper that is made to work together. This way no matter what sides of the blocks are showing they look good.

Using my Cricut (Cricut Crop Friday! Duh!) I cut vinyl numbers.
This is what you will need:
Block 1: 1,2,6,0,7,8
Block 2: 1,4,3,5,2,0
Doesn't matter what order just as long as they are on the right blocks.
Stick my vinyl on the blocks.

I sanded down my edges to add a bit of texture.

I added a little clip on the end. This is so I can put a slip of paper to show what we are counting down to.
Yeah! 3 days till Dylan's Birthday and 9 till Logan's!

Fun to do and SUPER easy!
