Being short of cash but still needing the buzz new puzzles bring means lots of lego puzzles! Here's a lego rolling cubes
(edit: link should be fixed now)puzzle i made:

Each cube is just two 2x2 pieces glued together with some flat 2x2 tiles glued around them. Unfortunately i didn't have enough of the correct colours to use the usual colour scheme so i had to use grey and beige instead of green and orange.

The frame inside it helps to position the cubes when they roll but again i didn't have the correct lego pieces to use so i had to cut a flat piece, with uneven results! I will eventually get the correct pieces to finish it off better.
I also made a mini one with stickers but it's a bit hard to figure out where the colours are and i think the stickers will get worn quickly as they are quite tight - but the cubes actually move very well in this puzzle.
These cubes are just one 2x2 piece with flat 2x2 pieces on the top and bottom. (Edit: i've decided to make the two colour version mentioned on Jaap's page out of this puzzle - just need to order more stickers!)

Anyone have any other ideas for lego puzzles to make?
