Photo Cube & Photo Stand Combo (Boom-Di-Ada)

When I saw the My Creations Cube by CTMH I wanted to come up with something to do to it to "alter" it a bit...to make it more than just a photo cube.  So I decided it'd be super-fun and super-cute to make a photo stand out of it!  This cube ships flat and then you just tie up the corners to make it into the 3D cube. 

To make this photo stand, I inked the edges of each side and then used CTMH's Boom-Di-Ada paper collection to decorate the sides and top.  I added photos and embellishments (CTMH, craft supply) to each side and the top.  Then I used my Soft Set Eyelet Tool (CTMH) to set two small eyelets (accented with inked flowers) into the top panel of the cube (see photo below). 
Before tying the top corners together (with string from Hobby Lobby), I hot glued a piece of styrofoam into the bottom of the cube.  Then I took some 14 gauge wire (Home Depot) and manipulated two pieces of it into swirls (to hold additional photos) and stuck the ends through the eyelets and down into the foam.  Ta-da!  Photo cube/photo holder combo accomplished!!!

Then I just added some flowers and coordinating My Stickease stickers to the stems of the photo holders and that's it!  Here is a view of the other two sides of the cube:
Thanks for looking and have a creative day!!!  :)
