Step 2. Cut out the paper cube.
Cut out the t-shaped cube template. If you need your cube to be sturdy, consider printing it on cardstock paper, or pasting your paper template onto cardboard before cutting it out. If you’re decorating the cube, now would also be a good time to do that step. Drawing or decorating on the cube when it’s already in its 3D form may be a bit tricky.
Step 3. Fold the template along the square edges.
Once you’ve cut out the cube template, fold the template at the edges of each square.
Step 4. Tape together the edges.
Tape the edges of the square together to form the cube shape. Congratulations! Your paper cube is now complete.
