It will take some time remembering that it is 2013, they say if you say anything 3 times you are more likely to remember, so here goes, say it
2013!!! 2013!!! 2013!!!
Do you believe in New Years Resolutions?? I am going to freshin up my HTML skills and start doing blog makeovers!!!!! Yeah? Yeah?.. so by next year I should have another website offering my services to beautiful people like you!!!!
I love getting creative and coming up with something I haven't seen before (that is not to say it is not out there somewhere) I have seen photo cubes that you can buy that are made out of chipboard but mine is two half squares that I accidently stumbled upon while playing and learning how to do origami! To make it stronger I used two 8" squares cut out from cardstock.
I put together some what of a tutorial, but you will get the idea.
First here is my project: The photos used were sweet Michael on our trip to my hometown in 2009
Ok! So here we go:
First get two pieces of 8" bt 8" cardstock, you will do the same with both for two parts make up the cube. (I used paper for this tutorial)
Fold from opposite corners both ways : here is a picture on one way, you then have to do it again to the opposite corners.
Flip paper over and fold in half, again do opposite sides
The creases should look like this when flattened out: (Sorry it is so hard to see!)
The next step would be to glue to keep it together then make an exact copy.
Fit one over the other and glue in place.
Next I added a flap that opens on top and made a closure for the bottom and embellished it! Voila!
