## 2. Folded Paper Cube

February 15, 2016
#### You can find a number of ways to fold an origami cube on the web. Jeremey Shafer will show you how to fold a seamless cube (below) here.

#### It’s a bit tricky. Wikihow has very clear instructions on how to fold a simple paper cube here.

#### But, Mathspig prefers the paper cube designed by Phillip Stromberg of the Netherlands.His cube calendar (below) comes inside one of these paper cubes. This was a very spooky calendar as Mathspig could see her life disappearing in front of her eyes for one whole year. ARrrrgh!

#### Here is the way to fold a Phillip Stromberg cube:

#### Step 1: Draw up a grid on cardboard 7 x 6 square.

#### Mathspig used 8 cm squares on paper. Cardboard would make a stronger cube.

#### Step 2: Count of squares and draw this pattern.

#### Step 3: Cut out the cube template.

#### Step 4: Use scissors to score all folding edges.

#### Step 5: Score the perpendicular bisectors of the isoceles triangles. Ha Ha! I’ve always wanted to say that!!!!

#### Step 6: Fold the cube sides up, tucking the extended flaps over the triangles.

#### Step 6: Fold down the cube lid!!!

#### OK! It may take some practice. But mathspig likes her cube.
