How to make a volumetric cube of paper</a>

In the technique of paper plastics can be done veryInteresting voluminous compositions. But before moving on to making sculptures or architectural models, you need to understand how to make the simplest objects - for example, a cone, a pyramid, a parallelepiped.

It's best to start with a cube.

You will need

  • - a sheet of thick paper-
  • - a pencil-
  • - ruler-
  • - square bracket-
  • - scissors-
  • - PVA glue.



Make a cube with the sweep. The cube has 6 identical sides, each representing a square. All the edges of this geometric body are equal to each other. Determine the size of the edge. Draw a piece of paper on the paper of the correct size and build a square on its base. Do not forget that all the angles of the square are the same and are 90 °. You have one of the faces of a future cube.


On the sides of the main square, buildOther faces. They turned out five, you also need to have six, that is, you need somewhere to place another square. It can be attached to any of the existing ones, except the central one.


You will glue the cube together, that is, you needMake allowances. In order not to get confused, make them only on the segment where you drew an additional box. The allowances are 0.5-1 cm, this depends on the size of the cube itself. Cut the corners of the allowances at 45 ° so that they do not interfere with gluing.


Cut out the scan. Fold the allowances and smooth out the fold lines. Then fold the workpiece so that the cube is made. Ribs are also better to iron out (for example, the blunt side of the scissors). If you have very thick paper or even cardboard, the fold lines can be slightly scratched from the inside. Make sure not to pierce the material through and through.


Glue your cube. Glue with glue does not need faces, but allowances. When working with thick paper and cardboard, it is better to glue gradually, and the place of gluing should be pressed. Press in this case is completely useless, it is better to squeeze the layers of paper with a large metallic paper clip, wait until the seam dries, and then do the next gluing.


After the cube is dry, you can decorate it. If you are making a toy for a child, glue a bright picture or letter on each face. You can make a whole set of such cubes.


It will be interesting to look and a fur-tree toy inThe form of the cube. In this case, there is nothing to glue on the edge. On the contrary, you need to cut out silhouettes in the faces - a snowflake, an asterisk, a herringbone. Such a cube can, for example, be put on a light bulb.


In the same way, you can make a cube and a foil. This material has its own characteristics. The foil is easily bent, but does not always glue well. It is better to take the material on paper basis. Instead of glue, you can fasten the ribs with paper clips - such as fasten the exercise books. If you have a color lurex, the cube can be sewn with large, but even stitches.
