How to make a paper Bus

Here is a simple step by step process to make a paper Bus. Things you may need: card paper, glue, scissor/knife cutter, colour paints & brush. This is how the final model will look like. Make drawing of the bus as shown in the picture below. I have kept the length as 10.7 cm, height 3 cm and width 2.3 cm. You can make your own size. Cut along the lines as shown in the picture below. Make sure you dont cut the tabs. The tabs will be used for glueing purpose. Crease the paper on the lines as shown below. This will help you easily get the cardpaper into a box shape. ; Color the bus with acrylic paint with color of your choice. You can paint the window & windscreen area with a shade of blue. Apply glue on tabs to stick the sides. This is how it looks from inside. Apply glue to the other tabs and stick the sides to form a neat box. Make 6 small circles for the wheels (i have taken a diameter of 1.2 cm) using card paper and paint it black. Stick them as shown in the picture below. You little paper bus is ready to cruise on your desk, monitor, book shelf or where-ever. If you liked this, please send in your comments with feedback.
