Photo Cube



My sister who lives in Kentucky, sent a Slip'N Slide in the mail for my children. They are so thrilled, and LOVE it! I wanted to send Christine a thank-you card, and decided this photo cube would be more fun. There's not much design to this, but my sister appreciates pictures much more...so that was my main focus.

The idea and pattern for this project came from a Joyce Meyer Ministries cube we received in the mail last week. I had to make some adjustments to make it work, and the finished cube is 2¾ inches. The coolest thing about this cube, is that it can be flattened for shipping. To keep the bulk down, I didn't use many embellishments. You can use a 6x6 envelope to send one of these (The last picture in the group, shows the cube flattened). I will just send some extra glue dots for my sister to assemble when she receives this.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm hoping to work on some cards later. Have a great day!

This is the greatest idea! I am absolutely losing my mind over how cute it is! :) I hope you will post instructions to make a template at some point. I've found templates for making a cube, but none that could be mailed in a 6x6 envelope. I just can't quite wrap my brain around that part. Thanks for sharing this cute, cute project!

You're so busy and productive, Rose Ann! I wish I could get half as much done as you! Your sister will really appreciate this. The pictures are going to give her smiles, for sure!
