Picture of paper puzzle cube
This is a kind of puzzle cube. I made it to see what I could do with the use of really normal stuff. They are all kind of shapes that fit in the box as shown on the picture. I gave it as a present for  a gift exchange.

Step 1: What do you need

Picture of What do you need
Like I said, I wanted to see what I could do with stuff:
- coloured paper. ( I used two-colour origami paper.)
- something between paper and cardboard( too thin to be real cardboard, too thick for paper.)
- seetrough plastic bag.
- glue.
- scissors.
- ruler.

Step 2: Drawing

Before we're gonna make the shapes, we want to know what shapes to make.
I made sure all the shapes I used were easy enough to make out of paper

NOTE: the black square is an open spot, not a shape.

Step 3: This could take a while...

Now take your ruler and draw these shapes!
Every square is 1 by 1 cm.

Step 4: Cutting it all out

Step 6: The box

Now we just have to make the box to put the shapes in...
Make a cube from 4,5 by 4,5 cm. Draw a square 0,5 cm from the edge. Cut the square out and replace them by a piece of plastic bag.
Fold the cube and glue it together, leaving one side open.

Step 7: That's it!
