I wanted to let you know about these amazing craft blocks from Hy-Lite®! They work great for both party gifts and decorations.

Each Craft Block comes in a standard eight-inch by eight-inch square size and is three-inches wide. The blocks are fitted with a one-and-one-half-inch sized access holes and have a reusable rubber seal, making it easy to add items inside the Craft Block.

“We’ve seen people fill the blocks with hard candies and then put a bow around them for a gift,” says Laura Sikes, marketing and national accounts manager with Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. “You can also add decorative twinkle lights. Or you can make banks out of them. There are endless ways to create crafty fun projects using the Craft Blocks.”

Sikes also suggests that people — including children — can make gifts out of the blocks. “It’s simple to create a memory box using the blocks,” says Sikes. “If you’re creating a gift for a collector of small items … like stamps, coins or puzzles, just fill the block with those items to give as a present.

“Adding potpourri or scented cinnamon sticks to the blocks creates a fast, easy gift. Or, you can put an assortment of dry dog treats inside the block and add a big paw print and the pet’s name on the outside as a gift for an animal lover!”

Easy to handle and transport, the long-lasting acrylic blocks are sold both individually ($15 each) and by the case (at $225 for 24 blocks) online and are offered with free shipping. The lightweight clear wave acrylic blocks are made in the U.S.A. and offer a safe, break-resistant way to create projects for all ages.
