With beautiful images from last year’s calendar, I created this inspiring block of quotes for the new year. Each side of this 5″ Smoothfoam cube is covered with a lovely painted scene that just oozes fresh air and serenity.
A glue stick and a paper trimmer is all you need to cover the block with images, then you can frame the edges with some coordinating washi tape. You can find a nice variety of small metal tags at the craft store, each engraved with a different meaningful sentiment. After dipping some pearl-head straight pins into copper alchohol ink, push them into the block to secure a tag on each side of the cube. This easy DIY project adds character to your desk, coffee table or bookshelf – along with inspiring reminders for the new year.
