Step 1: Supplies

for this project you will need 6 peices of square paper. I used 8" by 8" peices and the finished cube was around 3 inches.

Step 2: Step 1

take the paper and fold it diagonaly, then unfold it and fold it diagonaly the other way.

Step 3: Step 2

fold one corner into the center where the two lines meet, then fold the opposite corner.

Step 4: Step 3

Take the edge that you just folded and fold it into the center, then fold the other.

Step 5: Step 4

Fold each end corner into where the two creases meet. Fold both sides.

Step 6: Step 5

Take both edges that you just folded and fold it into a triangle. Make sure both creases are going the same way (it will look like a parallelogram).

Step 7: Step 6

Tuck both triangles under the flaps.

Step 8: Step 7

Flip over.

Step 9: Step 8

fold both triangles in.

Step 10: Step 9

Connect the peices. This is pretty self explanitory, just look at the picures.

Step 11: All Done!

Now you have a completed origami cube! :D
