Rhinestone Covered Rubix Cube

It is so much fun to take something old and make it new again.  When I think of the ’80’s I think of things like roller skating, Pac Man, boomboxes and Rubix Cubes.  So, when I found some Rubix cubes and I was trying to think of something fun for the Craft and Hobby Trade Show display . . . well . .. you can see what happened.

And it was SO EASY TO DO!  I simply cut the rhinestone sticker sheets with my Westcott non-stick scissors, into 5 gem wide stripes.  Then I cut those into 5 gem wide squares.  I peeled off the backing to expose the adhesive on the back of the sticker sheet and stuck those squares right over the colors on the cube.  I had the whole cube covered in rhinestones in a matter of minutes . . . can you IMAGINE how long it would have taken me to do this if I had to glue each rhinestone on one at a time!

The best part . . . you can still turn the sides of the cube and really use it!

Check out my blog for a photos of this, and other projects, from our booth at the CHA Mega Show this year . . . just click here and here.
