Remember the plastic photo cubes that were popular in the 80's? This project is inspired by those! It would be a perfect gift for any occasion too! Bring a smile to your loved ones face and invoke some happy memories with the photos that you choose for your project. Let's get started!
Step 1 Cut two 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" squares from Kraft card and two 8 2/16" x 4 1/2" pieces. Also cut from pink paper from the paper pad four 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" pieces and one 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece.
Step 2 Score the two square pieces of Kraft card at 1" on all four sides.
Step 3 Cut into the scored corners to create tabs.
Step 4 Glue the sides together to form a box base for both square pieces of card. These pieces will form the top and base of the photo box.
Step 5 Score both pieces of 8 2/16" x 4 1/2" card at 1" and 4 1/2" and fold along the scores lines.
Step 6 Glue the 1" section of the card and one side to the top and bottom pieces.
Step 7 Take the other piece of card and repeat adhering the 1" section and one side to the top and bottom of the box. Adhere them so they are opposite the other piece already adhered.
Step 8 Adhere both remaining sides to the box.
Step 9 Using Brilliance Crimson Copper ink, ink the edges of all of the pink pieces of paper and distress the edges.
Step 10 Using ColorBox Butter, ink all the edges of the photo box.
Step 11 Adhere the papers to the photo box.
Step 13 Using 3D foam pads adhere the photos to the sides of the photo box. Cut a square in the dark pink paper using the Cut Mat Create 2A dies and adhere to the top of the photo box with 3D foam pads.
Decorate each of the sides and top of the photo box with flowers and leaves. I used the Botanical Rose for mine, watch the Favorite Flower Shaping Techniques video to see how to make them too. I also cut a sentiment from the paper pad for on top of the box too.
