I’ve recently become inspired to live life, embrace possibilities and dream a little, through this new level of faith, my projects have taken a life all their own. I’ve decided to take my dreams and pursue a reality, with that, I’ve got to explore the possibilities of what exactly it means.

My focus has been driven and it’s become apparent to me and everyone that surrounds me that I am completely fascinated with Mod Podge, I swear by it, because it inspires so much creativity, and well, I love it. I’m going to be honest, my projects tend to become an all day journey. I take the time to plan, and then I reorganize how things are done, and then I add and build and until I am completely satisfied with the final result.The Inspiration Deco-cube is an exploration of my creativity. I hope you enjoy this project and create your own inspiration.

Materials

Materials

Wooden Cube (solid or hallowed – you can find it at Wal-mart for like $5)

Mod Podge (glossy)

Paint Brush

Chipboard Letters (made into the words you desire, I chose Mom, Love, Live, Faith and Hope)

Pre-cut squares of Scrapbook pages to match the size of the cube (my cube is 5×5 and I cut the squares into 4.75×4.75)

Embellishments/stickers

Instructions

Gather supplies and design your sides, planning ahead will save you a lot of time, but of course, I personally don’t seem to understand that.

After your cube is planned out, you can start adhering the pre-cut squares by applying Mod Podge to both the cube and the pre-cut squares using a paint brush. Be sure to smooth out any and all air bubbles, this will prevent it from lifting in the future. (Doing only one side at a time and allowing drying in between to avoid smudges, smears or finger prints.)

After you adhere the pre-cut squares, attach your inspiration words and stickers (and apply a coat of Mod Podge over it to seal it, if there are really raised embellishments save that for after you apply the top coat.)

Continue until all sides are covered and designed to your liking, leaving the underside of the cube untouched (you may seal it, but I wouldn’t put anything on it as it is the base of the cube).

    I am seriously obsessed with Mod Podge. This would make a great base for a clip to hold a photo.
