3D printing, Rubik's cube. Is it possible to do this?

A question for connoisseurs in 3D printing. I had a surprise idea for my girlfriend. A standard Rubik's Cube, but there are pieces of photographs on the sides, when the cube is assembled, the pieces on each side are assembled into large photographs on each side (as with flowers in a regular cube). After the cube is correctly folded, it is possible to get to the central (static) cell, for example, all 3 central small cubes are squeezed out, and on average, according to the idea, there will be a small gift.

Is it possible to do this using 3D printing and, although approximately, how much such a gift will cost.

Surprise puzzles are a great gift that will not be boring, and besides, they are also covered with the breath of time. It doesn't have to be a Rubik's Cube:

I can’t tell you about 3D printing, but in a print shop you can print your photos on glossy self-adhesive paper, similar to the one that is stuck on rubik’s cubes.

You can write small numbers / letters on each sticker. If you add it up correctly, you get a certain code / password that you need to enter somewhere and get information about where the gift is.

You can print a lot, but first you need to develop the design of this cube. In almost all (if not all) cube mechanisms, the central elements are held by all the others, and if they are removed, the cube will simply fall apart.

How about a big gift? That is, how big will the cube be? It turns out that the gift should fit into one of the cubes
. Something I have an idea more and more on the topic of electronics goes. Maybe some circuit just checks that the cube is assembled (a long wire closes) and opens one of the cubes of the cross (the solenoid kicks the lid, spoiling the photo)
It turns out a battery, a coil and wires in a cube. The battery can live in another cube. At least 1 diode should be added ...
But you need to make the wires so that they close only in the correct position. How to test is also clear (glue the last photo after the tests)
