If someone close to you just started having their own little family. Here is an idea. give them a family cube present. You take 8 wooden cubes and you connect them all to each other using masking tape, as you can see from our little demonstration. Use two types of pictures, square ones, and rectangular ones. Crop the images to fit every little cube as a puzzle and there you have it :). A personalized family present.

Then remove it and you will see that the foil got stuck on the double-sided tape. You can create different diamond shapes, fancy triangles and you can make it look as expensive as a Moleskine journal.
