Yes! you can do a DIY dice in less than 10 minutes. I’m talking about a DIY giant dice. Here we have two different ways to create our dice but the first one might take a bit longer than ten minutes because it’s sturdier and look better.
First we have to make a cube. Cut six square panels from your scrap card. To get them all the same size, first cut out one and use it as a template to trace five more. It’s important that each corner is exactly square so that it fits together well.
Lay your pieces out in a basic cube pattern, like below, and then tape every two squares securely on the back, following their edge with duct tape.
Now fold into a cube shape, taping the inside of the box for extra sturdiness. To stick the final panel in place I placed tape on each of the three adjoining sides and pressed the panel down – slightly fiddly but easy enough. When you’re finished this step you should be left with a cardboard cube, and all you need to do now is reinforce the sides with more duct tape on the outside and add the colored circles or numbers. For your convenience use a big hole puncher for creating circles
print one of the downloadable templates o the cardstock. Follow the template and cut it out. Now fold on solid lines carefully. Make sure fold is following the straight line. You can also make your hand wet and follow the line with your wet fingers this will help to fold to be more smooth if the cardstock is too hard to avoid wrinkles. Next fold gray areas toward the inside of cube and before you place them inside add some glue gray areas. To make it stronger you can also tape the dice on the outer edges.
If you want a bigger size after printing cut them out through the edges and stick them on a bigger cube. Click download to get the cube template
