I entered a humbug challenge with another group. My humbug is 1.25 inches x 1.25 inches x 1.25 inchs and I stitched it over a couple of days. Then I stitched the seams shut using a ladder stitch which helps to prevent fraying etc. Here is my photo of the finished piece which will make a wonderful scissor fob or christmas ornament. It is stitched over 2 on 28ct Monaco with 2 threads.
