FUNKY PHOTO CUBES

Hello friends, Nancy here with a tutorial featuring some of the great new stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop.

I’ve had a supply of wooden photo cubes for some time and wasn’t quite sure how I wanted to decorate them; they were looking for the just the right embellishment. The new stencils fit the bill perfectly!
