OMFG this gotta be the motherf*cking cutest thing EVAH!!1!!1!

Why, pardon my French, but I feel I must be excused. I just couldn't stop d'awww-ing over this when I was ready cutting and pasting it together!

I didn't design her myself, of course. Credits should go to the good Japanese people who made this site:

If you want to make a paper cube Ruby (or Iris or Scaredy and Venus) yourself, save the pdf files (bottom of the page, below the three photos), print them on thick paper and start cutting, folding and pasting!

If you consult the photos, it's rather self-explanatory, but take care not to make the same mistake as yours truly: I stupidly glued Ruby's head together before cutting the holes and attaching her body, "sideburns" and "crown", thus making things needlessly complicated. I still managed to make her look better and cleaner than the examples on the photos, though.

Another useful tip: paste her arms and hair together BEFORE you cut them out - that way you don't have to cut out the separated parts twice.

Well, here she is, proudly sitting on my modem. :-)
This one took me more than an hour to finish, but a second one (and I'm gonna do Iris as well) shouldn't take more than half an hour. Iris' design looks less complicated, too.

Heheheh, very cool; so chibi, and an instance where "being a square" isn't a bad thing.

^_^

Thanks for sharing; keep up the goodness.
