Papercraft Twisted Cubes!

Can't find that pesky Twisted Cube?
Make your own!
*prize NOT included*

You will need:
  • One of the pdf files listed below
  • Heavy paper (e.g. cardstock)
  • A printer
  • A pair of good scissors
  • A craft knife (e.g. x-acto)
  • A cutting mat (or corrugated cardboard)
  • Glue or tape (optional)

Model PDFs:

To make your Paper Twisted Cube:

  1. Print one of the pdf files on heavy paper, such as cardstock. (allow the ink to dry)
  2. Use a good pair of scissors or a craft knife* to cut out the model. 
  3. Use a craft knife* to cut slots in the larger tabs along the fold lines.
  4. Turn the craft knife* over and use the back of the point to 'score' or scratch the fold lines.
  5. Fold the model and insert the small tabs into the slots on the big tabs in the order marked.**
  6. Be twisted!

*When using a craft knife place the model on a cutting mat so that you do not damage the surface you are working on.

**The model is designed to hold together without any glue. If you would like a more permanent assembly, you can apply glue to the tabs as you assemble it.
