Moonlight Blog Hop: Boo photo cubes

Thank you for joining us on our “Take a Walk in the Moonlight” Blog Hop.  We have a fabulous path for you to follow as you take your walk in the moonlight with us as we feature Close to My Heart’s Moonlight paper pack.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you should begin your walk at the  beginning at Lucy's blog -

If you came from Joanne's Blog: Josie's Joy , you're in the right place!

My project is altered photo cubes:

These started out as unaltered photo cubes that I had in my stash.  They were purchase from Oriental Trading Company.  I think I paid $1.25 for each of them.

Step One:  I inked all edges in Black ink.  I used CTMH black Pigment ink and set them aside to dry

Step Two. I cut CTMH's Moonlight B&T in 2.75 inch squares and used Mod Podge to apply the paper to the sides and top

Step Three:  I cut rosettes at 1.5 inches in GoldRush Card Stock using CTMH's Artiste cartridge.

Step Four.  Boo was cut using Artiste as well.  This whole word is on one key in the Halloween suite.  It is cut 2.5 inches.  I applied Opaque Adhesive gems to accent each letter.

Step Five:  I layered the rosettes and letters and then adhered them to the blocks.

I'd like to add some black tule around the wire picture holder's but I am waiting for my next order to arrive :)

Here is a front view of my blocks:
