You’ll also need either tape or craft glue to hold the cube shape together.

The PDF file will come with all 6 dice in one file. So I suggest when printing, select the actual page number of the one you want and just print that one out.

It’ll save you paper and ink.

Then cut the template out around the solid lines. Don’t cut through the dotted areas.

You’ll end up with a shape like this.

The fold the tabs on the dotted lines one a flat surface to make sure you create a nice sharp fold.

Then start folding the shape up to make a cube. Here’s a step by step video to assemble the paper dice from Just the Art Teacher.

For more durable paper dice, I recommend using cardstock to print out your templates. This will make for a sturdier cube shape and they will last much longer.
