SNSDC73 - Hip to Be Square

Hello AGAIN Friends & Followers!  Welcome to my third blog post of the day (if you are looking for my TSG Treat Holder post or my Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge post, please scroll down) for Sweet 'n Sassy's Digi Challenge.  This week's challenge theme: Hip to be Square (you all have that Huey Lewis song running through your head now, don't you?  I know I do...).  I decided to take this challenge beyond the two-dimensional and make a cube to accompany my square card using my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy's Puppy Love digital stamp set (which is also available in clear as 'Woof You' for anyone interested) to make this little gift set:
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  Our neighbor's furbaby is having a birthday next week, I thought this would be a cute little gift for her.  I found this AWESOME Cube Box Tutorial by Jinky Kowalsky on Papercraft Planet, and converted all the metric measurements into inches (yeah, that took a little while, LOL!).  I really like the original way this cube opens - with the two sides folding down (when they are upright or closed you can secure them with a pretty ribbon).  Lotsa squares embellish the sides of this little cube box, with pretty pre-glittered and paw prints papers from the Paper Studio.  I did my best to color the pup like our neighbor's cute furbaby - she is really white with some grey dots around her paws, lower legs and ears - and added some bling to jazz the projects up a bit.  
     Hope you will join us and play along with our Hip to be Square Challenge - you don't need to use a SNSS digi, any digi will do, but we spotlight one person who uses SNSS digis on their card or project every week, and it could be YOU!
     Okay, three posts is definitely enough from me in one day.  I hope you enjoyed them all and I hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!  Cheers!
