Photos always make the best home decor and this easy DIY photo cube is a fun way to display all your favorite family photos.

I love attending blogger events because I never know what kind of goodies I’m going to end up with! There are always some kind of goodie bags and when I went to a private HP party they gave us a bunch of good stuff. My favorite was this HP Social Media Snapshots paper

You'll need Social Media Snapshots for your DIY Photo Cube

They showed us some of the cool things we could do when we downloaded the HP Snapshots app and I loved being able to print pictures straight from my social media. I could even add captions…how fun is that?

I love being able to print pictures from social media

Even better were the photo cubes. They reminded me of the big plastic cubes my Grandma had when we were little. These are much prettier though and SO easy to make. Since my mom always love gifts with pictures of the girls, I knew it would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift.

DIY Photo Cube 

Start by adding Social Media Snapshots paper to the printer and choose the pictures you want to use. The fun thing about these is that since I printed the pictures from my Instagram page, the captions were also printed underneath the photo. Too bad I was going to be cutting them off for this project.

I printed pictures of the girls for their Grandma


What you’ll need:

6 – photos printed on HP Social Media Snapshots paper

1 – 3 1/2″ wooden cube

scissors & a pencil

I couldn’t make my photo cube without, well…a cube! I picked mine up on Amazon. They come three to a pack so you can make several photo cubes if you’d like. 

You'll need to start with a wooden cube for the DIY Photo Cube

Start by placing the block on the pictures, one at a time, and tracing them.

Trace around each picture

Next, cut out the pictures.

Did I mention that these just stick right on? How easy can they make it?!

Peel off the adhesive backing.

Peel off the adhesive backing. and attach the picture to the cube. Do the same with the remaining five photos.

Stick the photos on each side of the DIY Photo Cube

Voila…you have a cute photo cube that you can either keep for yourself or give as a gift.

I love how easy it is to make this DIY Photo Cube

I also think that these would even be a great party favor for a kids birthday party. You could take pictures of the kids eating cake and playing games, then make these cute momentos for each child to take home (or they could even make their own). Wouldn’t it be so much better than a bag full bouncy balls, fancy erasers and all the other trinkets that come in the typical goody bag? I know my girls would love to have a cube filled with pictures of them and their friends.

Want to watch me make these photo crafts and more with the ladies of Suncoast View? If you live in the Sarasota area, tune in Tuesday at 4pm on ABC7! Otherwise, look for a clip on my Facebook page.
