This can be done both ways.

1. Having seperate maps for each side of the cube (6*maps)
where you use texture-coordinates for the corners like
(0,0) (1,0) (1,1) (0,1).
2. Or having 1 map having 6 different parts for all sides like this :

*----*----*----*
/ / / /
/ 1 / 2 / 3 /
*----*----*----*
/ / / /
/ 4 / 5 / 6 /
*----*----*----*

Then you have texture-coordinates for you cube-sides like :
1.Side : (0,0) (1/3,0) (1/3,0.5f) (0,0.5f)
2.Side : (1/3,0) (2/3,0) (2/3,0.5f) (1/3,0.5f)
3.Side : (2/3,0) (1,0) (1,0.5f) (2/3,0.5f)
4.Side : (0,0.5f) (1/3,0.5f) (1/3,1) (0,1)
5.Side : (1/3,0.5f) (2/3,0.5f) (2/3,1) (1/3,1)
6.Side : (2/3,0.5f) (1,0.5f) (1,1) (2/3,1)

Think you got to decide which of the methods you like most
,but the second style will make you more work coding .
