Family photo cubes

Time for yet another dollar bin decorating idea!  Found these at Target after I saw them on and had to rush and grab some up!  I had three families in mind to make Christmas gifts with them.  So for a whopping $4, $3 for the cubes and $1 for photo printing here they are...

The idea is that you can change up the pictures and family quotes whenever the mood strikes you.  I've had this one out and my own kids have been changing up the pictures and sayings and it's not even our family!  

Originally I was going to just print the quotes onto scrapbook paper, stamp out the name and add the pictures, but I was working on another project in Photoshop so I did the quotes and family name in Photoshop.  When I make a set for my own family, I think I may have each kid pick out their favorite family quote and write it in their handwriting, makes it a little more personal.

Of course now that I can't find these at Target anymore the pre-teen is asking for a set for her bedroom with her friends in it! Hmmmmm there's another great gift idea for a teen! :)  If anyone finds the cubes leave me a comment and let me know where you found them, I would love to have some more! :)




  1. I love these wish I could find some

  2. I keep hoping the dollar stores will get them in again! If they ever do I think I'll buy every one they have :)

  3. What an awesome ideas! I will have to keep my eyes open when I am shopping because this great! I also love how you did them :)

  4. I think these are so neat. I don't know why I've never gotten around to making one. Anyway, I saw that you were looking for the cubes. I used to have a Trash to Treasure book that showed how to make one out of CD cases so I just googled the idea. Lo & behold, I found this great tutorial & this one is even cuter than the one in my book! Just thought I'd pass it along. ;)

  5. I stopped at several Targets on the way to my parent's house for Christmas in search of more of them with no luck. I know Michaels has them, but not for such a great price.

  6. I like how you added the family name! Good idea!
