Funky Cube!

I made a FUNKY CUBE!!




For photo purposes, I used a picture I took of myself with the kids (timers on cameras, seriously, awesome invention). I was taking pictures of the kids to give as mother's day presents for the grandma's, and thought I'd snap one of me with my munchkins while we were at it.


Anyhow - details on the cube. First of all, this was made exclusively with papers from FUNKY FAIRY (go shop). I used papers from the "In with the Old" kit. I went with four of the plainer designs from the kit. A dark leathery brown, a light tweedy brown, a bright light pink, and a nice medium sky blue. I used my XYRON to adhesive the 5 squares, attached them to the cube (used a craft knife to trim the edges) then I inked the edges of the cube too.


I wanted to put some cute sayings around the cube and figured my Cricut would be a good choice. I used Sweet and Love from the All Mixed up cartridge, and the Trouble was from the Indie Art cartridge. I used the cricut markers to ink the edges, then went back and cut everything out. On the last side, I used some punches to accent - heart, star, and a flower in the same papers. Inked the edges and put some on pop dots for a little fun dimension.


You can see this and some of my other creations in the inspirations section on the Funky Fairy site. Refer to the link above, go shop, and while you're there - look around. There are tons of awesome creations by the Design Team to check out, plus all the fun kits, and a link to the "inspiration blog" where you can find some freebie downloads, a link to the Design Team's blogs, and much more.


enjoy!
