Father's Day desk cube


I recently arrived at one of my suppliers to collect stock and they were doing a class where there was a gap...needless to say I joined in and had so much fun. It is an interlocking wooden cube which is easy to assemble and glue together and add the paper and embellies to. The gold brads are like little 4 pronged pins which you hammer into the wood. This is great for the center of the flowers as they make the foam compress and the second little flower raises up and becomes 3D!


I am also entering this in the Grungy Monday challenge where it is anything using Tim Holtz Distress inks, this cube is covered in distress ink! In fact the red paper was not red at all to start with, but pink (not very fathers day like) and it got a heavy dose of Fired Brick and the corners Walnut Stain.
