STEP 1: Draw six FREEHAND squares with tabs (in the configuration shown above) onto paper or card.

STEP 2: Cut around the outside of the squares and tabs… you don’t have to be accurate.

STEP 3: Draw the numbers 1 to 6 onto the dice.. use your imagination, for example you could spell the numbers or draw objects!

Get folding

STEP4: Fold the tabs inwards, and then fold the sides inwards, until a cube shape is formed… remember, it’s supposed to be wonky, so don’t panic!

Get sticking

STEP 5: Finally, use sticky tape to loosely join the sides together… again, don’t fuss too much, if everything joins up perectly you’ve done something wrong!
