Tape the template to the cereal box, cut that motha out.  Easy peasy.

Use a glue stick to laminate the printout to the cereal box cutout. Use something flat & heavy to compress it together... in this example a case of beer is the best tool for the job.

BOOOOOOOOOM!  You're DONE!

Now you are just like Hermes, the Olympian who was really freaking fast.  Nothing can stop you now, so go bike, board, skate, pogo-stick like the wind!

I made mine out of hobby polycarbonite plastic sheeting, spray painted the back side white and just used industrial sharpie for the lines. I Velcroed mine so it would help slightly bend the wings so they wouldn't stick out so far. And it worked perfectly.

I just ordered white plastic hobby sheeting from amazon. I'm going to take this same idea but make it waterproof since I live in the pacific northwest.
