3 Part Box Puzzle





Introduction: 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.

Step 2: Part 1 of Solving

Take the left ring and tilt it to align it with the middle ring. See the image for details.

Step 3: Part 2 of Solving

Now you will have a perfect pocket where you can slide the 3rd ring into. See the image for details.

Do that and you are done.

Step 4: Perfect Cube

It may take some practice to do the steps but it is worth trying.

Go ahead! Make, play and enjoy.

    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

    Awesome idea! Please post pics of the final packaged thing.

    The coolest part is you can put like a little trinket inside and use it as a gift box

    This is cool
