Using a 2-hole beads like the Es-O Mini is a good way to do so. The basic concept it the same. You will need to create bead units with the same number/types of beads. However, the process for creating the units is a bit different for 2-hole beads.

Finish the cube and create the base for the next cube. Fill in the spaces between A beads with B. Pick up 1B and pass through the next A. Repeat a total of four times. Reinforce by passing through all the beads again. The image below shows the stitch work with both the 8/0 and 11/0 seed beads. The last unit worked at the top of the sample was done with the 11/0 so you could see what it looks like. I thought it would be easier for the reader to do the tutorial using the 8/0 seed beads.
