Companion cube

Fiona and I had a lot of fun making this for Noah. We made a five-sided box from mat board and cut a hole for the kleenex. Then we used foam sheets to make the shapes to cover it with.

If you aren't familiar with the Portal computer game, the term "companion cube" will mean nothing to you, but maybe you can appreciate our creativity anyway.


  1. Very cute!

    Are you on FB at all? I only have a select few blogs I like to follow and since I deleted my blog I usually follow them that way--you are one of the few I enjoy reading :-)

  2. I've been lurking, but had to come out and say that this is a triumph.

  3. we all think this is brilliant!

  4. My son would love it! He asked for a "companion cube" but shipping was almost as much as the cube so I said no. This would be a great alternative but I would not make a hole - He would find too many things to put into it, LOL.

  5. that is really creative!

    Happy New Years! Here’s to a fabulous new year!

  6. This is great! I was thinking of making my husband something like this for work, but I was going to use old school plastic canvas. I think I like your idea better! Kudos!

  7. I'm with Kato, and so I'm making a note here: huge success. It's hard to overstate my satisfaction in seeing this.
