Craft City!

So I've been wanting to make some crafts lately. So here's what I made . . .

These are tiles. (the cheap ones from home depot.) They're about 4x4 in.
A friend of our's took these pictures of Madi when she was 5mo. old. I love them.
I'll use these as decoration on the wall in Madi's room, or something like that.
Next . . .
I've been working on these blocks forever. They've been a stop and go project whenever I have time. I knit each side a different stitch and color. This is the first one I finished. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's pretty cool. Cal loves it, too!
Finally . . .
I'm still working on this one, I'm making Madi an alaphabet folder. This way she can keep all her letters in it. I'm also going to make some kind of board where we can try to spell words and learn to read.
The letters are simply held in with velcro. I'm pretty excited to finish this one.

So for the picture tiles did you just use cardstock and mod podge them on? They look awesome! I want to do some for the boys room now.
