A memory cube is a project in which one places 6 photographs on a cube. The cube can be made of wood, but in the case of this particular memory cube, the cube is a piece of card stock paper that has the photos printed on it and then folded into a cube shape.
The cube can be of anything - it can be a special die for a game or a cube of photos that all have something in common - a Theme Cube.
Suggested Materials for the Cube
- Card Stock (65lb cover, 80lb cover, or 100lb cover)
- Glue (I used white glue, such as Elmers)
- For pre-folding - a sharp edged object such as a table or counter-top with a sharp edge, or a thin-edged ruler, or materials for scoring the fold lines
