Emma- Altered Rubik's Cube **KI Memories**

Prepare to be amazed! Our project today puts good use to that Rubik's Cube sitting at the bottom of the kid's toy chest. Emma shows us how to put together this fabulous altered piece, using some of the Love, Elsie lines.

Altered Rubik’s Cube
by Emma Trout

Rubik’s Cube
Love, Elsie paper pack- Cody and Jack+Abby
Lace cardstock- KI Memories Bloom tulip surreal
Black spray paint, rub-ons, Dymo, double-sided tape.
Black pens and white pen (I used opaque white Inkessentials-Ranger).

Measure the length and width of a few individual squares from around the cube to find an average (mine were 2.2cm squares)
Spray paint the whole cube and set aside to dry.
Repeat the next step 6 times:
Cut a square of Love, Elsie paper 6.6cm. On the back, mark 2.2cm lines horizontally and vertically so you have a grid of nine squares.
Make up a mini layout on the front using photos, Love Elsie papers and epoxy stickers and KI Memories lace cardstock adding doodling as you work. Add a monogram (I used 6 letters, one for each side, that spell the word ‘family’) and rub-ons of Dymo lettering.
One complete, cut into the nine squares marked on the back and stick them to the Rubik’s cube with double-sided tape.
