People of all ages can use infinity cubes to relieve stress and gain focus or to use as a fun toy. The infinity cube is one cube made up of smaller cubes that can be remodeled in an endless number of ways. All you will need is six different colors of construction paper, basic craft tools and about an hour or two of your time. This is a good project for a rainy day.

Making the Small Cubes

  1. Cut out a rectangle with a length of 4 cm and a width of 2 cm.
  2. Measure the halfway point of the length. Then draw a line across the rectangle.
  3. Fold the paper so that the ends touch the line.
  4. Repeat this process five more times. Use a different color of construction paper for each repetition.
  5. Apply glue to the outside flaps of each rectangle.
  6. Begin constructing the first cube by connecting the flaps of one rectangle to the inside surface of the other rectangle, making two phases of the cube.
  7. Glue a third rectangle onto the newly added one. Make sure the flaps of rectangle one attach to the inside surface of rectangle three. Repeat this step and attach the rectangle to the other side of the second rectangle.
  8. Attach the base new rectangle to the top flaps of the third and fourth rectangles.
  9. Slide the final rectangle in place by attaching its flaps to the third and fourth rectangles, closing up the cube.
  10. Repeat the steps in this Part to make eight cubes in total.

Putting the Cubes Together

  1. Arrange the cubes into two groups of four by putting four cubes of one color on top and four cubes of another on the bottom.
  2. Using clear tape, attach top and bottom rows of cubes together in pairs. Do this by placing a small piece of tape on one side of the cubes, then fold the side with tape and place another piece of tape on the opposite side.
    • Repeat on the left side of the cubes.
  3. Continue by combining the bottom four cubes (with the same color) by adding clear tape to the right side. Bend the side with the tape and place another piece of tape on the opposite side.
  4. Repeat for the top four cubes.
  5. Affix together. With the cubes arranged in two groups of four, place clear tape across the bottom and top cubes in the middle to connect the two groups.
  6. Fold the cubes on top of each other from the point the tape was added. Create a 4x4 cube and put another two pieces of tape connecting the cubes where the colors do not match.
  7. Open, fold, flip, and enjoy your new infinity cube.
