Could It Be Any Easier?


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!
