I cut all of these from Pop Up Neighborhood. I have been working on this for awhile in between my other crafting. Had to wait until my Hubby cut the wood for mw and he even stained it for me and sanded the edges. These are all on 2x? so they stand on their own. I left the blocks square so they could also be stacked, set on a shelf or used for building with the little cars and trains we have. I really love the way they came out.
