Make a Yoshimoto cube

FK describes how to make a Yoshimoto cube. First, print out the template. Then, trim the paper with scissors along the perimeter and glue the edges into a 3D pyramid. Repeat these steps until you have 48 cubes. Fix 3 pyramids together 16 times. Arrange pyramids in groups. Repeat 2 times and color 8 of the pyramids. Place adhesive on the joints of the cubes. Arrange the pyramid groups into a cube. Now, you can perform neat tricks with the cube, like changing the cube from white to colored with a few turns of the hand.
