Awesome, did you think of this yourself?

Well I saw these cars (Flat Ryderz) and how they pop out of their pakage, the cube itself has another mechanics but the consept is the same (be splitted and loaded  then and with a pull it pops back up into shape again)

Thanks for your comment!
ha. very cool :) good trick to play on friends at school, maybe something along the lines of putting them in random binders and saying "you've been 'cubed'. pass it on" etc...

some of them even jump when it pops!

Haha cool :) I'm gonna try this tonight with my friends.

I'm sure others would appreciate a template of some kind to resize and print out.  Just upload the file and add to your Instructable.  Good luck!

Thanks for your suggestion and for you comment!
