Supplies for paper cube origami:
- Paper – We used 6 different colors of origami paper but you can use any colors that you like. Even scrap paper would work!
How to make an origami cube:
Each sheet of paper needs to be cut into the same size square. We made a 6″X6″ square for this cube but any size will work as long as they are all the same size.
Bigger squares make larger cubes and smaller squares will make smaller cubes.
Then take one piece of paper and fold the paper in half horizontally, crease the fold and then unfold.
Next, fold the top to the center crease and the bottom to the center crease and crease these folds as well. Do NOT unfold these.
Then you take the bottom right corner and fold to the top and crease this fold.
Take the top left corn and fold it to the bottom and crease this fold.
Unfold both of the folds that were done in steps 4&5.
Then unfold the top fold and then fold in the upper right corner. Then fold the top back down.
Next unfold the bottom fold and fold in the bottom left corner. Fold the bottom back down.
Unfold the top fold again and fold the bottom right corner back to the top on the crease already created.
Then fold the top section back down.
Next, take the top left corner and fold into the pocket at the bottom left section.
Flip it over and fold down the top triangle and bottom triangle. Make sure to crease each fold.
Follow steps 2-12 for the other 5 pieces of paper.
Once the pieces have all been assembled. Create your cube by inserting each triangle into a pocket on a different color square until the cube has been formed.
This is like putting together a puzzle! So fun!
