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
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.
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
Cut out all the shapes you just drew.
Step 5: Folding and glueing
Fold the shapes and glue it all together.
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!
Congratulations! You have made your very own special unique puzzel cube. But, do you know how to solve it?
