For my brother's wedding, which was this past weekend, I made a Companion Cube card box (from the game Portal).
It took soooo much longer than I thought it would, but it was worth it in the end.



Everything you can see that is gray is just posterboard with acrylic paint. The hearts are cut out of a craft foam sheet.





The light gray pieces were really complicated, especially because I'm not very familiar with papercrafting. They are each made out of a single folded piece of posterboard. The corner pieces have 19 facets, and the edge pieces have 15. Here were my templates, so you can see how complex they were:

It went over really well! My brother and now-sister-in-law loved it, and a lot of the guests thought it was really cool (we were a geeky crowd).

Thanks for the comment. The template I used for the 8 corner pieces is here: http://momopeche.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/karen_portal_corner.jpg.

I couldn't find a template for the 12 edge pieces, so I had to make one myself through a trial-and-error process. Other than those pieces, it's pretty simple.
