- Rubik’s Cube
- Patterned papers
- Black spray paint
- Black inkpad
- Embellishments of your choice
- Strong double-sided tape
1 Start by removing the coloured stickers on each square of the cube or spray the whole cube with black spray paint.
2 Measure the width of the cube then deduct 2mm from this measurement. This will give you a size to make your ‘mini layout’ for each side. My measurement was 6.6×6.6cm.
3 Make up six mini layouts. Try to remember that if you are using photographs these will be cut into smaller squares. Position the photographs so you don’t cut straight through a person’s eyes. Any embellishments such as gems or buttons should be added after you have cut and glued each mini layout into position.
4 When finished, you need to draw a grid on the back of each mini layout. My squares measured 2.1cm square with a 1.5mm gap between each square. It is important to leave the 1.5mm gap so everything lines up correctly when glued into position on the cube.
5 Cut and stick on the squares one side at a time (I used strong double-sided tape). Ink the edge of each square with black ink to hide the white paper core before sticking to the Rubik’s Cube.
6 Add embellishments as desired to complete your design!
