CD Photo Cube (Tutorial)

I don't think I've ever been more excited about a project. This photo cube is made out of CD cases! Isn't that neat? I made one for myself and I gave one today as a gift swap at our Club Med Luncheon (managers/executives/directors) at TAC's annual seminar in Wichita, Kansas. (I'm also getting an exclusive sneak peek at the new 2008 Fall/Winter Catalogue!)

I bet you can't wait to see how to make this cutie, so I made you a video tutorial. (Scoll down to view.) It's a fun project. You'll want to make a bunch of these for gifts! (If you make one, leave a link on my Cube Carnival!)

Post a comment or send me an email if you have any questions.



















Amberley Grace and Miss Moxie paper collections are from The Angel Company

Measurements:
For the Base:
1 8"x 8" cardstock (scored at 7" and 7 1/2" on all four sides -- or 1/2" and 1" in from each edge)
1 6"x 6" cardstock (to add stability to the base)

For the sides:
4 4 5/8" x 5 3/4"(scored at 5 1/2")
(embellishments can be any size you choose.)

I love this idea.......but unable to find CD cases.....can only find the skinny ones (and why is it they won't work?)
Any ideas where to find cases in B.C. Canada?

Awesome - I will definitely be trying this out....By the way - for those of you in Canada you can buy the CD cases at WalMart

I made one for a friend on SCS and she loved it. I had a bit of a problem with "put a little piece of tape on the top..." That wasn't really clear and I had problems with the thing staying together. But I worked out the problem and it turned out GREAT!

Gine said...

C'est une superbe idée merci de partager avec nous. Bravo !!!

Holly said...

I just made one of these. I've had it bookmarked like forever and finally got around to making one. OMG it turned out great and all, but it about drove me crazy putting it together.
