This is the photo cube for my Ladies Night workshop tomorrow. We'll also be learning the faux silk technique, but this project is the highlight of the evening. I saw something plastic once that you simply slide pictures in and it was pretty cheesy, but I owe it thanks because it was my inspiration! This idea has been swirling around in my head for over a year, and once I decided to do it, I've been really excited about it!!!
I just bought a 4x4x8 foot piece of lumber at Home Depot and with hubby's help we cut it down into cubes. They really measure 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 and I've completed my first one with sepia tone photographs and a simple stamped card stock piece on top. I used a large swirl image and overlayed the center "medallion" image which is heat embossed. Then I sanded all the edges to really make sure the photos won't peel up and I love the antiqued look the block took on. It also has a card stock bottom to cover the wood and make it table friendly. The bottom has a little stamping as well; "summer 2008" and stamped by Sally of course!
