As I saw the pictures in order I had no idea how nice the final result would come out. Great job!

That looks far better than I would've imagined it'd be, considering it's made of cardboard. :D Any chance of a video to see how good the movement is?

LOL I was like:
It's from paper... come on... what the heck.
uhu,.. paper towel tubes. give me a breack. This is in no way going to be good.
oh ok, glue and they even turn. (not well probably)

Ok, you used tape now. It actually looks acurate and stable, hm.

OK OMG THIS LOOKS SOO NICE! :lol:

This is one awesome rubik's cube! I feel so bad for beeing such a jerk in my thoughts before I saw the result. And I can't keep it for myself.
I feel the need to apologize 100 times. :oops:

GREAT WORK :D

Nice job! Well done. You should put this on eBay. I am curious to see how much someone would pay for a perfect cardboard Rubik's cube. :twisted:

I tried to make a paper cube once, it looked nice, but didn't quite work. However, this is simply amazing!
I totally want to try making this.

Wow, it looks really stable and the turning seems to be decent. I think that this is the best turning paper/cardboard cube ever made. :D

I don't think that the embed code works on the forum, but it's not too difficult to click the link to watch the video on YouTube. :D

The shipping cost would probably be through the roof.

This is amazing, I was awestruck by the quality of the stickers! When I first saw the stickered pic, I thought it was your regular 3x3x3... Amazing :D
