The wood we used was a basic 2x4 cut down to 3 1/2" squares. We roughly sanded the edges then applied spray paint. Krylon has a great spray paint available at Home Depot that usually only takes one coat. LOVE IT!!! For smaller projects basic acrylic paint works great.
The vinyl is a 3 1/4" square. All the blocks I have completed thus far have been white vinyl, however, a black vinyl would look great on most of the lighter colors of paint if you prefer black lettering.
Because these were distributed to an entire ward primary, we did package these in the cheap cello party bags from Walmart and tied them with a ribbon. This helped prevent the gifts turning into building blocks before the children returned to their parents after sharing time.
