Creating with My Creations - Cube

Close To My Heart has some great 3-D products called My Creations that you can alter to make some very special gifts.   They are easy to alter  - just cover with paper and embellish!   We have a wide selection of My Creations 3-D products - the Showcase Memory Albums (9x9 and 6x6), Display Album, Recipe Box,  Mix & Mingle, Board Book, Journal, Acyrlix Album, All-Sorts Mini Album and more!   Over the next several days I will be sharing some of the 3-D My Creations projects that I have done.

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.
