How to work

Make a copy of the pattern. Use a lightbox and draw on the backside of the grey card only the part with numbers, no wheels, front roof! Cut out that part. Tape the pattern on the cutting mat. Place the backside of the card exactly on the pattern and secure it with a few pieces of masking tape.

Fold all paper strips a small edge in the length, sort out on colour.


Cover section 1 with a strip of paper dark blue and fix it on both sides on the card with tape. Cover section 2 with a strip of blue with stripes and fix it. Cover section 3 with a strip of middle blue. Cover section 4a and 4b with strips of aqua paper. Continue in the same colour order: dark blue, blue, middle blue and aqua.

Close with blue on section 22 and aqua on section 24.


Take off the card. Use the copy of the pattern for front, roof and wheels. Place the copy of the front on the backside of paper blue and cut out. Place the copy of the roof on the backside of paper middle blue and cut out. Place one wheel on the backside of 2 pieces of paper silver and cut them out. Glue front, roof and wheels on the frontside of the card.


Fix 1 x 15 cm paper blue along the backside of the bottom of the card, 0.2 cm visible frontside.

Fix double sided tape on all edges on the grey card and turn the card around. Fix the grey card on the aqua card.
