Introduction: Addicting Paper Cubes!

Picture of Addicting Paper Cubes!

For some reason, human beings love to fiddle with things such as clicking a pen or twirling a whistle.  After a while, some objects get boring and you are forced to move on to another one.  This is sort of like fiddling with a rubix cube, but instead of twisting, you can flip the squares instead.This small paper cube game can be flipped, turned, and folded over endless times, and when you get bored of on sequence, simply change to another.  This is also simple to build and I would highly reccomend playing this with children.  I enjoy playing with my small paper cube game, and I know you will to!  Have fun!
