A Father's Day Gift for my Son
I was clearance saling a couple months ago when I happened upon a whole shelf of K&Co. albums and scrapbooking items. I found this Photo Cube Kit and fell in love with it. I bought three of them, and wish I had bought out the store (as it was, I paid $100 for $500 worth of albums, album kits and photo cubes and patterned papers).
I made this photo cube for my son, who is often forgotten when it comes to being recognised as a parent because his daughter doesn't live with him. I printed and sized six photos of him with his daughter, except for the top picture, which is my favorite Christmas photo. The papers were sized for the sies of the cube, and were adhesive backed. The stickers and frames were included. I had to add a little more dimension by using buttons and jewels, and matted a couple photos as well with cardstock. I think it turned out well, but my son really really liked it, so I know it was a hit, and he knows he is an appreciated daddy.
