It's a hanging mirror cube.
Multiple reflections of a friendly face make this cube-shaped ornament a personal decoration for your tree.
You mount a favorite photograph on a piece of foam-core board and frame it with an open-ended box of heavyweight mirrored Mylar (about $4 a sheet--enough for more than 20 cubes--at art supply stores). You'll also need a craft knife, a ruler, a needle and thread, and craft glue or rubber cement.
Cut the picture into a diamond shape (ours measures 2 1/4 inches square), with corners at top and bottom of the image. Mount on a piece of board of equal size. Cut a rectangle of Mylar so its short sides equal a side of the square and the long sides are four times as long plus 3/8 inch. Using the photograph as a guide, score the Mylar so it bends into four equal squares and a flap. Fold into a cube shape, add glue to the edges of the photograph and to the top side of the flap, and glue the photograph to the Mylar with the flap on top inside.
