DIY Block Letters

Alright, I am done with my simple personalized loot bags tutorial. Now, I am going to teach you how to make block letters from used milk boxes.


Block letters can be used as decorations for parties and occasions, or fun way to add personal touch to your baby’s or kid’s room.


Materials needed:

🔨 Old/Used Boxes
🔨 Ruler
🔨 Pencil
🔨 Scissors
🔨 Glue Gun
🔨 Glue Sticks
🔨 Masking Tape
🔨 Spray Paint
🔨 Letter Patterns (Optional)


Some stores sell block letters or pre-cut letters, but it would likely be more expensive.


Since I have collected a LOT of milk boxes, I’ll be using them for this project. That is one importance of NOT throwing things which you think could be recycled in the future.




Let’s get started!


First, draw your desired letter on the cardboard/box. You may use letter patterns if you have or draw them freely. In this case, I utilized our room’s floor puzzle letters and trace them.





Next, cut out those letters with your scissors. Curves might be hard to cut especiallyif you have big scissors; you may switch using smaller ones or if you don’t have, cutter can also do the job. Be careful!




Bear in mind that you have yo prepare front and back letters. Now, prepare the connecting strips to your desired width. I made my connecting strips 2 inches wide and cut many 10mm sizes on each side so that it will be more pliable and I can easily form the shape of the letter.




Once you have the strips, you may start lining them around the edges with the support of masking tape inside. Use glue sticks to join them with the letters. (I originally used liquid glue and paste them but it didn’t work so I decided to use glue sticks.)






Finish all the letters needed and make them lively with the help of spray paint. Mine was just simple, one color, I chose blue to match my son’s birthday theme. Let them dry. I suggest you buy a quick dry spray paint.






You can be as creative as you can to design the block letters. You may use different colors or you can add some accents like buttons, pebbles, or shells. Some like to put glitters, too.


Place them in a nice spot where your guests can easily notice.












Hope you liked this tutorial!

DIY Captain America Loot Bags

My son’s 5th birthday is coming and I am so much excited doing my yearly DIY decorations for his birthday party. Not only that I make it personalized but I also save money because I won’t need to order customized loot bags from party suppliers (which may cost higher).

The first DIY party needs that I will share with you is the loot bag. The theme for my son’s 5th birthday is Captain America. My sister and I had a little brainstorming on the design. Then, I bought the raw materials needed.


🎈 plain paper bag
🎈 ruler
🎈 pencil
🎈 blue foil (palara)
🎈 sticker paper
🎈 double adhesive
🎈 scissors

The paper bags I bought originally costs Php 15.00. I bargained 15 pieces for the price of Php 10.00 each. The vendor accepted. Yey!

I bought a cheap matte sticker paper. And then printed our design at my dad’s house. Haha! So, the print is totally FREE! 😊

Alright, so how to put them all together?

1. Measure the blue foil of the desired thickness. This one is measured as two inches in width. Then cut it.


2. Put double adhesive. I preferred using double adhesive rather than glue because it’s not sticky and messy to apply, and you won’t need to wait for it to dry. Attach it in the middle of the paper bag.


3. Cut the outline of the sticker. Our logo/design measures 3.5×3.5 inches.


4. Stick it at the middle of the paper bag. The sticker shows the party type (birthday), name of the celebrant, and “Thank you for coming”.


5. Cut another blue foil with the same width as the one we created earlier and stick it in the middle at the back of the paper bag.


6. Repeat the same procedure for the entire loot bags.


That’s it! Then put all the treats inside the personalized loot bags. Some of the suggeations are toys, candies, chocolates, and art stuffs. You can actually put anything that you think a child would love see upon opening the loot bag.

I have printed small logos, too. I will be using them to seal the loot bags once filled with treats.


Now, I’m finally done with one DIY project for my son’s birthday. It’s time to jot down my menu for tomorrow’s groceries. Good night! 😊
