Baby Photo Cube
Given that my side job to my day job and my blog job and my mom job ( lost yet?) is making Birthday Blocks, its pretty understandable that a go-to gift idea for a friend’s new baby is something in block form. Right?
When my best friend had her third baby girl, I thought a cute little photo cube would make a nice decorative present. I’ve seen variations on the idea for Christmas and whatnot, so I just sort of winged it, using the newborn pictures of her three girls and that wonder of wonders, Picmonkey.
Have I mentioned I heart Picmonkey?
Pink and brown had kind of been a thing for her daughters ever since her firstborn, so I stuck with it. I got this beautiful digital paper pattern a while back from PoofyPrints on Etsy, an instant download package of designs. I first used them in my Pink & Brown Argyle Birthday Blocks design, but I loved the paper so much, I needed to make another project with it.
I uploaded the background pattern to Picmonkey and used the Overlay tool to add the girls’ baby pictures to the top of it. After that, it’s really just a matter of playing with the text fonts and colors to come up with a combination that you like. Here’s what each of the girls’ sides looks like:
For the fourth side, I found a sweet quote online and worked it up:
I left the bottom of the cube blank, since it is meant as a shelf decoration anyway, but I did put a cute title on top, reading “The Hecht Sisters”.
Turned out pretty, I thought!
I used digital papers and computer editing, but this would be just as easy to do with regular scrapbook paper and stickers! 🙂
