DIY Paper Toy/Favor Box, 'Goodies Carrier' Truck

3.90

Here is a little paper truck or lorry, to fill with goodies! Use this as a favor box or a table-top container for pens, stationery, coins, buttons or any small objects.

THE STORY OF TRUCK ART: The roads and highways of India, are made more beautiful and colorful by the trucks that run on them. The name ‘GOODIES CARRIER’ is a pun on ‘GOODS CARRIER’, the title that every truck carries proudly. Every truck is bedecked with hand-painted art and symbols which are common across all trucks and yet each time they are painted, they have a unique character. The colors are bright and primary, making massive trucks seem like bright toys on dust-colored highways. The unique Truck Art style, a testament to the truck owners’ love for their brightly decorated homes, is threatened by the digital revolution, as hand-painting is fast being replaced by mass-produced stickers.

This little paper toy is our ode to the lovely, but dying, Truck Art style. It is lovingly illustrated using authentic references. It is offset-printed on excellent quality un-coated card, and the template is pre-cut, with fold lines marked with creases. The container is a lovely bright red color inside. Very quick and easy to assemble. Use white gloopy glue for best results. Safe for kids, as no scissors or knives are required (we recommend using double-sided tape).
