[a] Photo Cube Tutorial

These photo cubes are so fun to make that I had to share them with you ♥ They make a very cute alternative to giving a card!

12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper
trimmer with scoring blade or stylus
double stick tape
embellishments, photos, punches, etc.

1. Using the ruler on your trimmer, measure in 2 3/4 of an inch from the left hand side of your paper and make a cut stopping 3 1/4" from the bottom.
2. Turn card stock 90° and insert paper into trimmer to measure 3 1/4". Measure 2 3/4 of an inch from the top, insert your trimmer blade and cut until you reach the bottom of your paper and you are left with an "L" shape.
3. Starting with the side of your paper that is 2 3/4 of an inch wide (place paper in trimmer like a backwards "L"), score at 1/2", 3 1/4", 6", 8 3/4", and 11 1/2".
4. Turn card stock to score that other side at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", 8 1/4", and 11".

5. Hold your paper to form an "L" shape and trim 1/2" off of the right hand side.
6. Trim the corners and tabs as shown.
7. Decorate as desired.
8. Add sticky back tape to the tabs, form your cube and you are done!
