Alphabet Puzzle Print by Kristen Sutcliffe from New House Project

I used an inexpensive foam alphabet puzzle to make letter stamps.  Then I made a poster with a line from one of my daughter's favorite bedtime books*.  Sweet for Valentine's Day!

What you'll need:
*foam alphabet puzzle like this one* or this one*
*wooden blocks
*double-sided tape
*ink pad (one color or multi-colored)
*ruler (preferably L-square)
*sheet of card stock or other nice heavy paper

Step one:
Choose a phrase or line from one of your child's favorite story books.  
Step two:
Use double-sided tape to temporarily attach the letters that you will need for your phrase to wooden toy blocks.  Don't forget to reverse the letters when you tape them on.
Step three:
Plan how you will layout the phrase on the paper.  You may want to practice on scrap paper.  I originally tried to use an 8.5" x 11" paper but found that the letters looked too squished, so I went for an 11" x 17" sheet.
Step four:
Use your stamps and ink pads to carefully stamp out the phrase.  Use an L-square ruler to make sure you are stamping the letters in a straight line.
Note:
I originally tried to use the textured front side of the foam letters when I could, but found that the front side wouldn't absorb the ink as well as the back.  It might be best to use the reverse side of the all of the letters.
