Learn To Make Rubik’s Cube Pen Stand

Materials Required:

  • Colored paper; red, green, yellow, white.
  • A pair of scissors
  • Glue stick
  • Scale
  • Pencil
  • Compass
  • Toilet paper roll
  • Paper cutter


✨ Step 1: Drafting the Rubik’s cube Pen stand

  • The first step is to make a draft of this Rubik’s cube Pen stand.
  • To make this draft, you will need pencil, ruler and a white paper sheet.
  • Draw the draft as shown in the image above on a white sheet of paper.

✨ Step 2: Cutting the draft

  • When you have made the draft, we will move to the next step.
  • This draft will become the base of the Pen stand.
  • Cut along along the outer edges of this draft.
  • Cut out the two circles made in the draft.

✨ Step 3: Folding the draft

  • Now you have a cut out draft.
  • Start making the shape of the Rubik’s cube Pen stand by folding along the lines made in the draft.
  • Keep on folding along the lines slightly, until you get perpendicular folds on each edge.

✨ Step 4: The basic structure ready

  • When you have folded along each line on the draft, you will get a structure.
  • This structure made of hard white paper is the basic structure of your Rubik’s cube Pen stand.

✨ Step 5: making the base sturdy

  • Now stick these folds and form with each side.
  • Use glue for this purpose.
  • This will make the structure strong.

✨ Step 6: Making more structures

  • Now we will be making more such basic structures for the Rubik’s cube Pen stand.
  • We will make these multiple structures to ensure the height and structural strength of the pen stand.
  • Make sure you follow the measurements in each of the structure.
  • Now you have three such structures.

✨ Step 7: Setting up the pen stand

  • We have made the circles in the structures of the same size aas the toilet paper roll.
  • Now take a toilet paper roll and fix it inside the circle of the first structure.
  • Use glue to fix the toilet paper roll in position.

✨ Step 8: Securing the toilet paper roll inside the first structure

  • Use glue to help the toilet paper roll stay secure inside the base structure.
  • Keep the toilet paper roll stable and flat inside the structure.

✨ Step 9: Adding height to the Rubik’s cube Pen stand

  • Once the toilet paper roll is fixed in the base structure, we can add more structures to increase the height of the pen stand.
  • Stick the other two structures one by one on top of the base structure.
  • This increases the height of the pen stand and provides a canvas for the Rubik’s cube design.

✨ Step 10: Cut off the excess roll

  • When you have stuck and secured the three structures around the toilet paper roll, we can remove the excess paper roll from the top.
  • Take a paper cutter to remove the excess of the toilet paper roll from the Rubik’s cube Pen stand.

✨ Step 11: Starting to decorate

  • We started to make this pen stand with a vision of colorful and bright craft.
  • Now divide the sides of the pen stand in small squares.
  • Cut out small-sized squares from colored paper.
  • Make enough squares with colored paper to fill in the surface of the pen stand.

✨ Step 12: Adding colored squares

  • Now take these square colored pieces and start adding them to the pen stand structure.
  • Stick these squares one by one. No two same-coloured squares must be used side by side.
  • The contrast of colors provides more beauty to the craft.
  • This looks pretty and colorful.

✨ Step 13: Completing and filling all sides of the pen stand

  • Keep on moving upwards and sidewards as you keep on adding the colored squares to the pen stand.
  • You can stick two same-coloured squares diagonally.
  • Make sure you use bright colored sheets for this purpose.
