Christmas Card Rubiks Cube {Upcycled Christmas Card Project #3}

Christmas Card Rubiks Cube Cover

How many ways can I use old Christmas cards?

Yesterday I showed you Project #1: Framing the select beauties!!

Earlier today it was Project #2: Christmas Card Gift Labels

This project was the result of wondering the aisles at the dollar store.  I’d picked up some ribbon for a craft (which I don’t think will get done before Christmas:) and then decided to look for stocking stuffers for the kids.  I saw the generic Rubiks cubes and this idea popped into my head.

Upcycled Christmas Card Project #3 : Decorated Rubiks Cube

Christmas Card Rubiks Cube Tutorial

This projects a bit putsy really.  Even with the templates each individual square ended up needing to be trimmed a  little.  I’d make another one but only if I had a higher quality cube to start with.  I like having Christmas decorations that are fun to engage with.  For example, we have a snowglobe that involves trying to land a ball on the top of Santa’s bag.  Unfortunately this cube doesn’t move so easily so actually playing with it won’t happen too much I’m guessing.

Oh well, still a cute decoration I think!  How about you?

(Still) only 7 sleeps until Christmas!!

Blue Skies and Blessings,
