## Gather your materials.

You will need 6 pieces of paper, a pair of scissors, and a pencil. If you want to make your deck more durable, you can also use glue or tape.

1. Start by folding one piece of paper in half lengthwise. This will be the base of your deck.

2. Cut two pieces of paper in half widthwise. These will be your ramps.

3. Take one of the ramp pieces and fold it in half lengthwise. Unfold it and then fold each side towards the center crease. Fold it in half again and cut along the center crease to create a ramp with sloped sides. Repeat with the other ramp piece.

4. Cut two more pieces of paper into quarters widthwise. These will be your grind rails.

5. To make your kickers, take one of the quarter pieces and fold it in half lengthwise. Unfold it and then fold each side towards the center crease. Fold it in half again and cut along the center crease to create a kicker with sloped sides

## You will need a sheet of paper, scissors, a pen or pencil, and a ruler.

1. Begin by folding your paper in half lengthwise. Then, fold the paper in half again so that it is now quarter-sized.

2. Use a pencil or pen to draw a line down the center of the paper, dividing it into two equal sections.

3. Cut along the line you just drew, making sure to cut through both layers of paper.

4. Unfold the paper so that it is once again a large sheet, and then fold it in half width-wise.

5. Draw a line down the center of the paper, and then cut along this line as well. You should now have two long, thin strips of paper.

6. Take one strip of paper and make 1⁄4 inch (0.64 cm) folds along its entire length, creasing each fold as you go.

7. Next, take the other strip of paper and make 1⁄2 inch (1.27 cm) folds along its entire length, again creasing each fold as you go.

8. Once both strips of paper have been folded, begin accordion-folding them until they are both about 2 inches (5 cm) wide. Make sure to line up all of the folds so that they are even with one another.

9Cut both strips of paper in half so that you have four equal-sized pieces

## Cut your paper.

Use a sharp knife to cut your paper into strips that are about 1 cm wide and 15 cm long. If you’re using a printer, A4 paper is a good size to use.

## Start by cutting your paper into a rectangle. The long sides of the rectangle should be about twice as long as the short sides.

Start by cutting your paper into a rectangle. The long sides of the rectangle should be about twice as long as the short sides.

Next, fold the paper in half lengthwise. This will give you a crease down the middle of the paper.

Now, fold the paper in half again, this time widthwise. You should now have a crease down the middle of the paper that is perpendicular to the first crease.

Next, fold each side of the paper towards the center crease until they meet in the middle. This will create two triangular halves on either side of the paper.

Next, fold each triangular half in half again. You should now have four smaller triangles on either side of the paper.

Now, take one triangle and fold it up so that its point meets the top edge of the paper. Fold it over so that its point meets the other top edge of the paper. This will create a pocket on one side of the paper. Repeat this process with each triangle until all four pockets are created.

Your Tech Deck is now complete!

## Fold your paper.

Start with a rectangular piece of paper. If you want your Tech Deck to be a standard size, use a sheet of letter-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches, or about 22 x 28 cm). If you want a smaller Tech Deck, you can use A4 paper (8.27 x 11.69 inches, or about 21 x 29.7 cm).

Fold your paper in half lengthwise. Unfold it, then fold it in half widthwise. Unfold it again so that you have a crease running down the center of your paper from top to bottom, and another crease running across the center of your paper from side to side.

## Fold your paper in half lengthwise. Then, fold it in half again.

The first step is to fold your paper in half lengthwise. Once you’ve done that, fold the paper in half again so that you have a smaller rectangle. Next, take the top right corner and fold it down to the middle of the rectangle. Then, do the same thing with the top left corner. You should now have a triangle.

## Draw your lines.

Start by sketching out the basic shape of your Tech Deck on a piece of paper. You can use a pencil or pen for this, but don’t worry about being too precise — you can always adjust your lines later. Once you’re happy with the general shape, use a ruler to draw in any straight lines or angles.

Next, use a pencil to lightly mark where you want the trucks to be attached. The trucks should be about 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the nose and tail of the deck, and they should be evenly spaced apart. Make sure to leave enough room in the middle of the deck for your fingers!

Once you have all of your lines drawn, it’s time to start cutting out your Tech Deck. Grab a pair of scissors and carefully cut along all of your lines. If you want, you can use an X-acto knife for this step — just be careful not to cut yourself!

Now that your Tech Deck is cut out, it’s time to start assembling it. Grab your trucks and attach them to the marked spots on the deck using glue or double-sided tape. Once they’re attached, you can add wheels — if you want, you can even use real skateboard wheels! Just make sure they’re firmly attached before you start riding.

And that’s it! Your Tech Deck is now ready to ride. Be sure to take it slow at first — paper tech decks aren’t as durable as their plastic counterparts, so they won’t stand up to too much abuse. But with a little care, they should last long enough for you to learn some new tricks!

## Use a ruler to draw two lines on your paper, one near each long side. These lines should be about 1/4 inch from the edge of the paper.

Mark the center of each line with a dot. Draw a third line perpendicular to the first two lines, going through the center dots. This will be your Tech Deck’s deck. Use a ruler to make sure the lines are perpendicular and the deck is in the center of your paper.

## Cut your lines.

Use a sharp knife to cut 4 lines into the top of your deck, evenly spaced. These will be your Tech Deck trucks.

## Use your scissors to cut along the lines you just drew.

Now that you have your template drawn out, it’s time to cut it out. You’ll want to use a sharp pair of scissors for this step. Try to cut as close to the lines as possible, so that your deck is the same size as the template.

Once you’ve cut out your deck, you can start shaping it. First, use your finger to slightly curl up the edges of the deck. This will make it easier to grip when you’re skateboarding. Next, use a pencil or your fingers to gently push down on the center of the deck. This will create a concave shape, which is perfect for doing tricks.

If you want, you can also decorate your deck with stickers or other artwork. When you’re finished, your tech deck is ready to ride!

## Unfold your paper.

To make a paper tech deck, start by unfolding your paper so that it’s a rectangle. Then, cut the rectangle in half lengthwise to create 2 long strips of paper. Next, fold each strip of paper in half widthwise so that you have 2 smaller rectangles. Once you have your 2 smaller rectangles, fold each of them in half widthwise again to create 4 even smaller rectangles. Finally, cut each of the small rectangles in half diagonally to create 8 triangular pieces of paper. Once you have all your pieces of paper cut out, you can start assembling your tech deck!

## You should now have four equal sections.

You should now have four equal sections. If they are not exactly equal, that’s okay. Just make sure that each section has the same number of layers.

Now it’s time to add the tech deck graphics. For this, you will need a printer and some paper. Any kind of paper will do, although card stock or photo paper works best.

Print out the graphics that you want to use for your tech deck. Make sure that they are the right size for your deck. You can find a variety of free printable tech deck graphics online, or you can create your own.

Once you have your graphics, cut them out and glue them onto the center of each section of your tech deck. Make sure that the graphics are well glued down so that they don’t come off when you’re skateboarding.

And that’s it! Your paper tech deck is now complete. You can use it just like any other tech deck, but be careful not to get it wet or tear it up too much. With a little bit of care, your paper tech deck will last for a long time.

## Draw your tech deck.

Start by sketching out your design on a piece of paper. You can make it as simple or as complicated as you want. Once you have your design, use a straight edge to draw clean lines over your sketch. This will be your template to cut out your tech deck. Cut out your deck shape with sharp scissors, then use an X-acto knife to carefully cut out the wheels wells.

## Start by drawing a rectangle in the middle of one of the sections. This rectangle will be the deck of your tech deck. Then, draw two rectangles on either side of the deck. These will be the trucks. Finally, draw four circles in the middle of the deck. These will be the wheels.

Now that you have all of your parts drawn out, it’s time to start assembling your tech deck. Begin by folding the paper in half so that the trucks and wheels are on either side of the deck. Next, fold the top and bottom edges of the deck inward so that they meet in the middle. Finally, fold the entire assembly in half so that the deck is on one side and the trucks and wheels are on the other. Your tech deck is now complete!
