Step 1: 6 Pieces
Step 2: Folding
Next fold the paper in half bringing the left edge to the right edge.
Step 3: Folding
Step 4: More Folding
Next, keeping the 2 corners folded, fold in the "closet doors.
After that, fold the top right corner in to a right triangle, aligning the edges. Do the same for the bottom left corner.
Step 5: Still More Folding
Flip it upside down and carefully, without unfolding the bottom part, tuck the remaining triangle in to the other "closet door".
Step 6: Last Fold
And fold as shown.
Step 7: Repeat!
Step 8: Assemble
- You will have the X pattern on the outside of the box
- For every flap that you tuck in, another different flap will also be tucked in with the exception of the 1st two pieces (and maybe 2nd).
- If the box is completed with only 5 pieces, it's ok, but you will most likely need 6 pieces.
- If you are using 3 colors it looks the best if you have color a on opposite sides of the cube. Same with colors b and c.
