Just recently I finished a My Creations Cube. I have to admit, I have had this cube for a while. I just wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it because there are so many possibilities. Our Idea Book has some great artwork pictured through out the book using the cube. I chose to make my cube a Christmas gift box! This cube is 5x5x5. It is the perfect size to hold a Christmas coffee mug and some hot chocolate!
The cube comes flat which makes it so easy to cover. I cut each sqaure of B&T paper and aherred it to the cube. (Be sure to turn it over and cover the that side also - it will be the inside of the box.) It only took 2 and 1/2 sheets of 12x12 B&T paper and 1/2 sheet of cardstock. I covered my cube with the paper from the Mistletoe Creative Basics. For the front of my cube I used the A Sip stamp. I stamped the cup with Cranberry Ink, the spoon, steam and sentiment are all stamped in cocoa ink. I embellished with Mocha Adhesive Gems. The box is tied together with cranberry ribbon.
This shows the top of the box. To make an open/close lid, I did not tie the ribbon to the top of the box - I only tied the sides together. I used a hole punch to punch a hole in the lid and also the front near the top. I then tied a ribbon through the two holes to tie the lid shut. For added embellishment to the top I added photo corners from Foundry Flourishes Assortment. (These have peel and stick backs)
Order a couple of cubes ($4.95 each) and give a gift that will warm someone's heart.
