Two Cube Folding Puzzles (Posted on 2007-12-18) Difficulty: 2 of 5
How can a 2x4 rectangle be cut (and still remain in one piece) and be able to be folded into a 1x1x1 cube?

How about a 3x3 square?

If the rectangle and square are cut along the lines indicated below then the number in each subsquare indicates which face of a standard die that subsquare will be folded onto.
