How to Make Your Rubik's Cube Identifiable

Introduction: How to Make Your Rubik's Cube Identifiable

When I first stared taking Rubik's cubes to friends houses, my friend and I both got confused between our two cubes. So to solve this, I added stickers and other adhesives onto my cube so I knew it was mine. This instructable should help explain how to do this.

Step 1: What You Need

- Rubik's cube
- Duct tape, a colour of one of your Rubik's cube sides. You can get this from most department stores.
- Scissors
- Pen
- Ruler

Step 2: Measuring and Applying Duct Tape

In this instance I'm using red duct tape. Measure 1.5cm by 1.5 cm on your duct tape. This is the area of a Rubik's cubes' sticker.
Make sure it is not too big so that it goes over the cubie.
Cut this out and stick it on the matching coloured side on your Rubik's cube. 
I would then recommend writing your initials or something on your Rubik's cube so that you know it is yours.

I wrote an 'L' on mine.

    Knowing your capabilities, you should give them a go. True?

    Why not write on the cube instead of a piece of tape?

    the stickers are not matte, they are very smooth, and if you just wrote on the sticker, it would rub off immediately
