This is an easy way to create a Rubenking cube from a regular 3x3 Rubik's cube. The total project cost is somewhere around $7-10 depending one what materials you already have. I would recommend thecubicle.us for any stickers you might need, as well Rubik's cubes.

Step 1: Remove Your Stickers and Cut the New Ones.
This step is fairly easy, simply remove the stickers that are already on your cube. I recommend scraping them off with a plastic razor blade (or your fingernails) and removing the remaining gunk with 'goo gone'.
The next step is to cut the stickers that will be going on to the cube. This is fairly simple, all you have to do is cut each sticker at a 45 degree angle from corner to corner. My best advice for this is to eyeball it. The first might not turn out perfect, but you will definitely get the hang of it quickly.
Step 2: Place the Stickers on the Cube.
The next step is to place the stickers on the cube, for this I recommend using something like your exacto knife or a can opener. The results are far better when you do not use your fingers. Follow the template below in order to put the stickers on correctly.
Step 3: Scramble Your Cube!
