Cantina Blog Hop

It's happy hour at the Club Scrap Cantina Blog Hop!


Welcome to my stop. Today I was inspired by Dairy Queen marketing. After picking up a frosty treat for my dear daughter and me, I noticed this cardboard cube tower next to the restaurant exit. It stood about as tall as I am. Since it could easily be converted to a tabletop variation using CS papers, I snapped a pic of it on our way out to remember the idea.

Here are the pics I snapped during assembly using the Cantina Collection. I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking. For perspective, the matte board squares are cut to 3-1/2".

















Lastly, the fun of adding photos and embellishing . . .


Next on the hop is the talented Debbie at Masculine Inspirations In Paper & Crafts.  You'll want to see what she is up to!

  3. What you didn't want to make it life sized? I'm disappointed in you :) Love the photo steps on the cubes...I think that works even better than trying to read an explanation!
