The Soma cube is a puzzle invented by Piet Hein in the 1930s. It is composed of 7 pieces that can be assembled to make a cube. You can make a Soma cube with origami cubes, and you only need paper (no glue, no tape).
To make the origami Soma cube , you need 9 square pieces of paper:
With each colored square, you can make 4 cubes, which is perfect to make the 7 pieces that all have 4 cubes (except one that has 3 cubes).
Here are the step-by-step instructions to fold a Soma cube (photo diagram and/or video).
1. The 7 different pieces of the Soma cube, with an extra flower.
