Heartfelt Sunny Paperweight

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to my first project of the new year for Heartfelt Creations! This paperweight uses the Classic Sunflower Collection and is a quick and easy project.

This project started when I saw a wood block at my local craft store. Now I realize my DH has some scrap 4″x4″ in the garage, but I also know what it would have taken to get him to make me a few blocks. Not only would he have had to clean off the chop saw, at least a 2 day project, but I am sure it would require a new saw blade which would mean a trip to Home Depot and a few other woodworking stores. So my $3 block would probably have cost at least $50 and taken a few days to finally have it in my hands.
