Step 1 :

Start by making the shapes in the picture.

 

Step 2:

Take the two shapes with the 4 x 3 sides and place the side with three balls in between the other shape’s side with the four balls.

Then fold it over.

 

Step 3:

Take the 5 x 2 shape and place the side with two balls in between the side with three balls of the previous shape and fold it over.

Step 4:

Take the 6 x 1 shape and place the side with one ball in between the side with two balls of the previous shape and fold it over. Pinch the corners together.

Now the one side of the octahedron (diamond) is done. Do the same with the other side and you are one step closer to your awesome looking diagonal cube.

This is how your shape must look now:

Step 5:

Take your octahedron (diamond)and cut off five balls of each corner.

Step 6:

Take six balls and pinch them into a triangle. Make eight of them.

Step 7:

Take all the triangles and place each one on a different side, as indicated in the picture.

 

Step 8:

The last step is to take one ball and place it in the middle of the triangle you just placed on each corner. Repeat on each corner.

You are finally done!!  Now you have your greatest and coolest looking cube ever!!  

I hope that your cube will turn out perfect. Thank you for taking this journey with me J
