Photo Cubes

Here’s a fun little project I did a little while ago. I bought some pre-cut 2″ wooden cubes from Michael’s (a craft store), painted them white, and decoupaged photos onto the blocks. For two of the blocks, I printed out words and decoupaged them as well.

It’s a unique way of displaying fun little photos!

  1. Hi! I just discovered your blog & I’m new to blogging! I LOVE your photo blocks. I’ve never decoupaged before but want to do this so badly! Can you tell me how you did this? I have an inkjet printer will this work? Thanks, Tammi, mom to 3 little ones!

  2. Hi Tammi! To decoupage, you need to buy a bottle of Modge Podge (similar to Elmer’s glue). I spray painted the wood blocks white, printed out b & w photos on my inkjet printer and cut them to the block size. To adhere the photos onto the blocks, I first put a coat of Modge Podge of the block and stuck the photos on. Then I covered the photo with a coat of Modge Podge for a sealer. There are detailed instructions on the Modge Podge bottle. It’s handy to use a foam brush to put the Modge Podge on. And that’s it!

  3. Thank you Aimee!!! I got some modge podge today & the blocks! 🙂 Do you print out on photo paper or just regular printer paper…the Michael’s lady told me my photos may bleed if I print on photo paper. ??I LOVE your blog. 🙂 And your daughter is beautiful! My 18 mth old son would adore her!TAMMI

  4. Hi again Tammi! I used photo paper and didn’t have any problems. I think if you use regular paper, it will be too thin and the Modge Podge may not spread as well. Let me know how it goes!
