Here's a project I made the other day using the twist cube. I came across this picture of my kids when they turned one and thought it would be fun to make a card to commemorate the milestone. (11 years later)
Here's the outside of the card. I used Basic Grey's Oliver papers.
When you open the card you'll see that the knob (Tim Holtz, Advantus) is attached to the top of the collapsed cube. All of the letters and numbers were cut using the Sizzix eClips "Sassy Serif" cartridge.
Pull up on the knob and the cube twists open, revealing a fun alphabet block. A tag hangs from the knob and tells the date the photo was taken.
I die cut the twist cube from Real Wood Thin Cherry, from Creative Imaginations. The thin outer frames were cut by hand from cardstock but all of the letters were cut with the eClips cartridge.
Want to see this card in action? Here's a quick YouTube video:
