By: Kathleen George for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

Dig into your scrapbooking stash to find fun ways to highlight your memories and create these great picture cubes.  Show off your babies, friends, pets, and other favorite photos. 

Picture Cubes

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cube, 3"
  • Color photocopy of desired photo(s)
  • Craft punches, assorted
  • Decorative-edge scissors, assorted
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Scrapbook papers: one 12" x 12" background sheet; assorted scraps
  • Alphabet stickers, die cuts, or rub-on letters
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Dimensional embellishments, assorted (optional)
  • Paper trimmer with cutting and scoring blades (optional)
  • Computer and printer (optional)

Steps:

  1. Cut two 3-1/2" squares and one 3" x 12" strip from background paper. Note: A personal paper trimmer makes this step quick and easy.
     
  2. Center and glue 3-1/2" squares to top and bottom of foam cube. Clip corners and fold excess paper to sides of cube; glue to secure. Pin paper to cube until glue dries; remove pins.
     
  3. Wrap 12" paper strip around cube sides, gently creasing paper to mark corners. Remove strip and fold corners to create crisp edges. Glue paper around cube. Note: If using paper trimmer, insert scoring blade and gently score strip every 3", then fold.
     
  4. Trim and glue photo(s) to one or more sides of cube. Cut assorted strips and other shapes from scrapbook papers using decorative-edge scissors; glue to cube. Punch shapes and glue to cube; use both punched shape and strips/blocks of negative image left behind.
     
  5. Add name to cube using word-processing software, lettering stickers or rub-ons, or your own handwriting for a very personal touch. Add dimensional embellishments as desired.
