Day 2 Photo Cube-10 Days of Christmas Gifts

This fun and easy project looks great sitting on the desk of someone that you love- a perfect gift. I used a gift box, but if you wanted something more substantial you could use a 4x4x4 wood cube. (they sell them at Ben Franklin in Redmond if you live in the Seattle area).

4x4x4 Gift Box-white or brown
2 sheets 12 x 12 Paper
2 feet ribbon
Chipboard Letters
Large Metal Rim Tag
Chalk Ink

Also needed: Paper Trimmer, scissors, brown pen, 1 3/8” circle punch, and photos of course!
Fold gift box together. Use adhesive on flaps to close box

Cut papers into 4x4 pieces-you need 6 pieces. Adhere a piece to each side of box. Ink all edges if desired.

Cut photos to fit on sides of box. I used one 4x4 photo and then 3x4 photos for the other surfaces.
Punch 1 3/8” circle from scrap paper. Write date on circle and add to circle tag.
Wrap ribbon around box-use adhesive to secure. Tie ribbon along top, thread on circle tag and then tie again.
Add chipboard letters to spell “together”.
Adhere photos to box sides. Add the word “JOY” along one photo.
