You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami cube. Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is a 15cm x 15cm square paper. It is a good size for those who are not experienced in paper folding. If you are become familiar with this model. Then you can try smaller size paper.
