You will need
  • - a computer with a text editor and a set of fonts;
  • printer;
  • - copy paper;
  • - colored paper;
  • - scissors;
  • - hole punch.
Open a text editor and set the appropriate font. In the top menu you will find a window with the names of the fonts and sizes. Fill all the numbers from 0 to 9 and print the page. You can write the numbers and hands. Better to do it on graph paper. If you are going to transfer them on colored paper using a blueprint, you only need the outlines. To move the numbers on the paper through the glass with light, fill image with ink or black gouache.
For the production of printing stencil is very convenient to use graphic editors. There you can not only enter text, but also a mirror to reflect horizontally. Then you will be able to translate the letters are not on the front and on the reverse side of the paper. If you have a color printer, you can make figures and plain white paper. When preparing to print, fill them with the desired color.
Put the numbers on paper. If you do not have at hand carbon paper (which you can buy in the Department office), use a regular glass. Sheet with printed numerals stick tape, for example, to the window. The numbers in this case are located as they will look. From top, apply a thin colored sheet of paper face up and trace over the contours. To work with the velvet paper or cardboard, this method is not suitable. But you can cut out the printed numbers and use them as stencils.
Cut out the numbers. To work with thin colored paper, use a sharp craft straight scissors. If you want to entrust this to a child, give him scissors with blunt ends. Velvet paper or cardboard is easier to cut with a knife with trapezoidal blade. Cut out figures on the outer contour.
Some figures you have to cut another hole surrounded by a contour on all sides. For this to work smoothly, make a cut away from the edges. Can be used, for example, a hole punch. Continue the process with scissors or a knife, trying to cut as carefully as possible. Turn the paper, not the scissors.
