Introduction: DIY Cardboard Rubik's Cube Stands


If you collect twisty puzzles like me, at some point in time you're going to need more stands. Of course every Rubik's brand cube comes with its own stand, but most collectors go beyond just "Rubik's". If you'd rather display your cubes the proper way than just leave them lying around, here's a good solution. And it's really easy.

Step 1: Print the Template (or Just Draw It)

Jut draw a template like this or print this out.

Step 2: Cut It Out.

Cut out the design and then trace it onto a piece of thin cardboard. (I used cardboard from a cereal box) After tracing the template onto your cardboard, carefully cut it out. Make sure to cut the solid line. You can draw your own design like i did below.

Step 3: Fold

Fold along the dotted lines like below-

Step 4: Staple / Tape

Now all you have to do is staple or tape it together. Both work fine.

Step 5: And You're Done!

The best part is how easy it is to make them, so you can make one for each new cube you get. :)
