Introduction: Cardboard Kitty Convertible
Create your own animal-appropriate sized cardboard car with these steps and soon your cat/dog/bunny/etc. will be able to back your car out of the driveway for you!
-Adhesive (I used Gorilla Glue)
Step 1: Cardboard
Flatten out any cardboard boxes and prep them for drawing your template.
Step 2: Draw Your Template
Draw your desired car template. My inspiration was a convertible. Make sure to add tabs where the pieces will adhere together. My car body includes:
Step 3: Get to Cutting
Cut your template out and fold in the tabs.
Step 4: Double Check
Position the pieces to make sure the car will line up properly.
Step 5: Make It Stick
Adhere the tabs to necessary parts. Let the cardboard body dry.
Step 6: Taking Shape
At this point the car body should be taking shape.
Step 7: Paint Time
Now we get to painting. I had lots of leftover paint from other projects, so went ahead with colors already in my stock.
Step 8: Accessorize
Add wheels and accents. My car includes:
-painted on windshield wipers
-a license plate from "Catifornia"
Step 9: Ready to Roll!
Add your pet and your project is ready to hit the road... or just keep it in the house for safety's sake.
