Picture of 3 Part Box Puzzle

This is a puzzle that came to my mind as I was making decoration for Christmas. You know, those decorations where you make long strand of paper by linking them as chains.

So this puzzle is like you take a link of 3 paper rings and assemble them to make a box.

Step 1: Main Part

Make a link of 3 paper rings of the same size. They should be exactly cube for this puzzle to work.

Give the link to a friend and tell them to assemble this into a perfect cube.

Solution in next steps.

I'm going to do this for present wrapping! So easy and still a mind challenge for those who aren't challenged often enough! I'm going to time how long it takes folks to get it. Great work
