Dancer Dice Part 2! New materials, new faces!
What You'll Need:
There are two ways to go about building these large-scale dice. If you're into recycling and have large shipping boxes lying around, go for option 1. If you're willing to spend $2-$5 on foam poster board, go for option 2.
What You'll Do:
Option 1: If the flaps on the box are wide and long enough to make 3 equal squares (each), that will be easiest. Otherwise, cut six equal squares out of the box where you can. If you're cutting 6 squares, disregard steps 2-4
Option 2: Cut the poster board in half, length-wise. Most standard boards are 20" x 30" which means you can get a dice with 10" x 10" faces. Other board sizes require trimming in order to make the faces square.
STEP 2: Measure and mark three faces on both pieces of cardboard/foam board.
Cut halfway through the cardboard or foam board at the marks you made. This way, you can bend and easily put the two pieces together instead of 6.
Plan your dice faces. You can wing it or map it out before hand. (winging it prevents headaches)
Draw or paint dice before assembling. (allow paint to dry thoroughly) This way you can have it on a flat, sturdy surface.
Assemble. If you have extra cardboard, reinforcing the corners can make the dice sturdier and last longer.
