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!

Supplies used:
Many different collage sheets - just enter a keyword into the search engine and away you go!
Gold Glam borders and corners
Authentique Accomplished collection
Ready To Go Board Blocks
Glue Sticks

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
