When I found these cute little note cubes, I knew I'd just have to use them in one of my workshop projects. The really cool part is that I didn't know until I set the finished cube into the base that the short, chubby snowman in front would fit perfectly in the slot.
Here are the supplies I used:
Stamp set: The More the Merrier, Hostess Level 3, Pg. 17
Paper: Not Quite Navy cardstock (CS), Pg. 156 #101722
Ink: Basic Black, Pg. 155 #101179Real Red, Pg. 156 #101133; Garden Green, Pg. 156 #102272; Only Orange, Pg. 156 #102696; Ballet Blue, Pg. 157 #100907; Sahara Sand, Pg. 155 #105208
Accessories: Blender Pens, Pg. 192 #102845; Sticky Strip, Pg. 192 #104294; Red Gingham Ribbon, Pg. 183 #104827; Mini Glue Dots, Pg. 192 #103683; 3/4" Circle Punch, Pg. 186 #107217 White "Post-It" Note Cubes; Baby's Breath; Rubber Band
Wrap the rubber band around the cube to hold the sheets tightly together while you stamp the image. If you want that short little snowman to fit into the base slot, try to center him as much as possible. Also, be sure to stamp about 1/4" down from the top so you don't cut off your snowman's head. Repeat on all four sides.
Squeeze a little ink onto the covers of the inkpads and use the Blender Pen to pick up a little of the ink. Color in the image as desired. Scribble on scrap paper in between each color to clean the pen.
Measure the bottom of your note cube and add 1-1/16". My cubes were 1-7/8 x 1-7/8", so I cut a 2-15/16" square. (Or, as I call it, 1/16" short of 3")
Score 1/2" on all four sides and snip the corners as shown. Use the 3/4" Circle Punch to punch out the half-circle slot in front. Add Sticky Strip and assemble the base. I should tell you that the Sticky Strip in this photo did not come from Stampin' Up! I used some 1/8" Sticky Strip I had on hand.
Tie a ribbon around the cube and base, covering the Mini Glue Dot and you're all done.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll be inspired to try one of these note cubes for yourself. This would be a perfect little Secret Santa gift, don't you think?
