The hardest part was figuring out what colors to paint the blocks. Making sure we didn't have the same color 2 letters in a row was hard. In case you decide to make them, here are the details.
You need 11 blocks total that are 3" wide if you want them the same size as these
-4 blocks that are 4.5" tall
-4 blocks that are 3.5 "tall
-3 blocks that are 3" tall
This is how the blocks are paired up

you can obviously see the colors in the pictures, but just in case...
This turned out to be a really fun gift. I ended up really loving the packaging.
