I am a member of the HP Craftalong, and our Charms class requires us to craft something pertaining to the HP Marauder's Map.  I have always been a puzzle person so the Rubic's Cube was a natural choice.  The cube measures 2 3/4" each way.  I took off all existing pictures glued on the cube, searched the internet for pictures that represented the map and those things Harry Potter.  After finding the pictures I wanted, I printed them in sizes that would work for my cube.  Then, using Mod Podge, I glued the pictures to all six sides of the cube.  After the sides dried, I gave the cube a coat of Mod Podge over the pictures to protect them.  After this coating dried, I then cut the individual faces into nine parts so that the cube would work. 

I barely got my pictures taken, before my grandson began playing with the cube.

    Wow this is so cool!! I've never had the patience for doing Rubic's Cubes, but this would be one I'd be tempted to try!
