Friday Round-up: Rubik’s Cube Madness!

I am a collector of hobbies and lately I have gotten back into the Rubik’s Cube.  The Rubik’s Cube was invented in 1974 by a Hungarian sculptor and professor named Erno Rubik.  He was awesome.  He didn’t even realize he had made a puzzle until the first time he scrambled it and tried to get it back together.  It took him like 6 months, now the world record is 5.66 seconds.  My best time is somewhere just shy of 2 minutes, but I am getting better.  Enough about me, you are here for crafts so here we go!
