The City of Love

Paris, the city of love.  Although I've never been to Paris, there are so many things I love about it!  I thought these wonderful cubes would make a great showcase for them.  Several Altered Pages collage sheets have French themed images.  There are many different images of the Eiffel Tower, wine labels, dancing girls, and so much more! There is a Paris rubber stamp set, too.

Sold in a set of four, these 3" Ready-To-Go Blank Board Blocks are super fun to decorate.  You can use all four together to create a set or individually, which is what I've done here.  I cut 6 squares of Authentique Accomplished scrapbook paper to 2 7/8" and adhered one to each side of the cube with a glue stick.

I found these wonderful border stickers at Altered Pages and trimmed each design down to fit on the blocks just to give each side a touch of shine.  I used a couple of corner stickers, too.

I combined the collage images whith stickers and other embellishments. I have kept each side mostly flat so that the cube can be turned to highlight each side.  Another option is to add feet to the bottom to give it a little height. 

My next plan for one of these little blocks is to use one as a mini scrapbook for a friend.  The possibilities are endless!
