Photo Cube

One of the Creative Crew Challenges this month is to make a Photo Cube! I had never made one before so I was happy to give it a try.  The directions can be found here.  The cube went together fairly quickly, and so did the decoration because I used slightly large pictures and did not leave myself a lot of room for embellishments. 
You need a 12 x 12 piece of paper for this project.  Score one side at ½", 3 ¼", 6", 8 3/4", and 11 ½".   Score the other side at 2 ¾", 5 ½", 8 ¼", and 11". 
You end up cutting away a lot of the paper, but no worries, I used the cut away piece on some cards, score lines and all.  The score lines added some texture and looked good with my geometric patterned paper. 
I attached my photos before folding up the box, it made it easier. I used sticky strip to adhere the flaps.
I decorated the top with a paper bow, but you could add another photo or embellishment. I bought a paper bow template the other day, and I wanted to try it out.  I think the paper bows look really nice with double sided paper.
Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. I cant figure out how you are assembling it after you cut away the paper??

    1. Hi, i wish i knew how to shoot video for my blog, maybe that will be something i work on in the new year. After you cut away the middle, and cut the little tabs, I added sticky strip to the tabs and folded up along the score lines. one square will completely cover another, so i added sticky strip there as well. i worked off the splitcoast stampers tutorial:

  2. Beautiful job!!! I'm a new follower and just am like a kid in a candy store trolling through your blog!
