A cardboard skateboard can carry a person in motion. The term “paper tech deck” is often used to describe this kind of toy. While the actual size of a paper tech deck may vary, the basic steps are similar to those of any other skateboard. The materials used are solid paper, which makes the finished product a sturdy toy. Follow the instructions below to make your own paper tech deck!
The first step in creating a paper skatepark is making a fingerboard. These can be elaborate or simple. The basic idea is to build a skatepark with a few rails and ramps. Make sure to set aside a few feet for the project. Start by making a template for the fingerboard by tracing the outline of a band-aid. If you do not have a steady hand, use a pencil to ensure that the shape stays true.
A second step is to fold the paper four times. First, fold the paper lengthwise into three sections. Then, fold all four corners underneath one side, showing the fold. After that, unfold it and pin the edges together to form a fingerboard. Repeat with a third sheet. Next, cut another sheet of paper. Make the other three pieces. Once you have these, make them concave, and use them for skateboarding tricks. You can also use them for fingerboard tricks, like kickflips, treflips, and hardflips.
