Greeting Blocks

robin1962June 28, 2007

I am looking for the directions to make the greeting blocks where you can make up to 80 or so sayings out of turning the blocks different ways. Each block has letters on each side and there are instructions on how to place the letters to make the sayings.

Anyone know what I'm talking about??

Thanks for your help.

Hi Robin, Try typing "greeting blocks" in the web browser line above. I did and came up with pages of stuff but I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

How about this? I found it on the holiday forum.

All Season Blocks

1 has N D H also has three small flowers stenciled on it
2 has E I P and a Christmas looking tree
3 has M P G and a small Canadian or American flag
4 has Q A I and the number 4
5 has L O R and a heart
6 has L A W S
7 has E T J and a shamrock
8 has V O H R
9 has A B C D
10 has Y G C and a pineapple
11 has H E L R
12 has S D N W
13 has S O A C
14 has T N W Y
15 has T V U O
16 has F I K M

The # of each block was stenciled on the bottom, the symbol on the top and the letters were stenciled on the side with one side left blank to be used for blank spaces in the messages.

Some suggested messages

That all sounds very complicated to me.

I actually get it...

There are 6 sides to each block. You put the coordinating 3 letters PLUS the block # ie (#2) on the bottom and the drawing.. That 5 spaces... you leave the last space blank.

The examples are just what messages can be made w/this particular system - using whichever # blocks... hmmm - very interesting!!!!!! thanks!!!!
