Select the desired look of the photo cube from the list of designs. My selection was “Happy New Year “ as it is just few days away from New Year 2015 and so printing one will serve as a gift to my family.

 You can print the design as such using the print option from the abobe or custom design your cube. I chose the latter. 

There are five layers to design and you need to select the layer one by one to custom design it according to your preference.

I used my Google Nexus 5 phone to connect to the printer using the "printer" option in my mobile settings. The HP plugin is already installed and came along in my Google Nexus 5 and hence printing using HP printer was a breeze.

The output of the printed photo cube came of beautifully as seen in the be,low image. There are some number 1, 2, 3 and 4 which helps us to bring the look of the photo cube.

Cut along the lines to get the look of the plus as seen in the image. Now, crease along the lines so that it enables smooth folding

Step 1- First fold as such the middle part is at the top and the other two parts are below.

Step 2- Next, fold such that the top 3 and 4 face each other and pull toether sticking them together or simply put stick 3 on 4.,

Step 3- Then, bring down the photo deign on the top below to stick it on the numbers on step 2

Step 4 – Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the mubers 1 and 2.

The final output of the photo cube looks like below. As I printed and designed the photo cube on the gloss photo paper, the quality of the photo cube is quite impressive and also quite sturdy.
