Ooh its Heartfelt Wednesday at last !!!
I have been wanting to share this for a few weeks now !!
Remember those plastic photo cubes our
Grandparents had sat on the side with our photos in ???
Well ...... this is my take on one of those !
And these photos are of my Grandparents !
All photos are from 1940 and earlier !!
I love old photos !!!
Pop on over to the Heartfelt Creations and
check out the inspiration over there !

This is photo heavy as there are so many sides to my project !!
Here is the top.
You could of course have a photo on it !!
To make this cube I have a tutorial HERE
then all you need to do is decorate !!!
This would make a great gift.
I wish my Grandma was here she would have loved this !
