CD Photo Cube Carnival

I was featured as a guest blogger on the Databazaar Blog, so I thought I would celebrate with a CD Cube showcase!


I've seen so many great variations on this project since I first posted it, so I thought I would share with you some of my favorites. The following gals did some really cute cubes:

Live, Laugh, Love with Lunar Lana
Le Scrap de Sylvie du Havre
Diane with ScRaPIt
Carol at Stampin Hot in Arizona
Bloggin with Bobbi
Bunny Cates


I also got some great tips:
Our Angel Beth Green made a pencil caddy for her hubby's desk and filled me in that a cardboard frap holder fits perfectly inside the cube. SWEET! How about making one of Stephany's Yummy Cocoa Kits and giving it with a photo cube for a fun holiday gift! My personal favorite way to decorate your holiday gifts is with The Angel Company's new Reece Soar With It Collection. {wink}


Some people are using their cubes to hold things, like tissue boxes, Bobbi's so-chic greenery centerpiece shown in the photo above and I loved RuthieB from SCS's idea of having holiday cards on display at Christmas time! Tonniece (see her link below) made her cube into a votive holder by using vellum inside her cube. Brilliant!


I also got a lot of questions about holding your cube all together, so I wanted to post one more instructional photo about adding adhesive to keep your cube sturdy. Whether you use a temporary tape solution or your good old glue gun, refer to this photo and to the original You Tube Video or John Wik's original Instructable for the details on making your own photo cube.
