Holiday Project: Photo Cube Tree

I've been working on projects for the holiday open house at the store where I teach. This one was very fun and quick to complete! I started with a set of six cardboard photo cubes. I played around with them and decided to make them into a Christmas tree.

I used a line of double-sided Christmas paper by Scrapworks to cover five surfaces of each cube, with a black and white photo on the sixth side. The boxes can be stacked in almost any order. You can put all the photos on one side or mix them up as I did here.


I tied ribbons around three boxes and added a few Flair Adhesive Badges by American Crafts as trim. I used a die-cut chipboard star for the top box. To make it stand up, I poked holes in the top of the box for the two star tips, then I ran a thin line of Glossy Accents around each tip/hole to provide additional stability.

This little project would be a fun and easy Christmas gift or holiday decoration!
