So, I started with this.
I measured the width and cut the height accordingly to get a square then cut the leftover piece to fit the top. After taping it down, I ended up with a cube.
I used the same measurements and cut out scrapbook paper to wrap around the cube and Mod Podged it down.
After the cube was completely covered, I used my distress ink to rub the edges.
It's looking pretty good so far!
Then I got out my Cricut and cut a sheet of brown 1" circles. After I saw all those dots, I thought that these would be a great way to practice addition and subtraction at home with our little guy since they use the "dots" in first grade to learn how to add and subtract. Tricky little mama I am! He'll never even know we are studying when we are playing with these cute little ditties!
I Mod Podged the dots on and then gave it a final coat of Mod Podge to seal everything up and give them a little shine.
So, do they pass the coffee table test? Yep! They look too cute sitting on a tray on the table.
I'm linking up to The CSI Project this week! Check it out for more great ideas!
