Operating instruction

Having prepared the material, let's get to work:

  1. Display. Glue circles on both sides to the roll (toilet paper sleeve) forformation of an integral figure. In the middle, along the roll, we make an incision - numbers will be shown here, indicating the weight and cost of the product. Cut out 12 oval shapes from cardboard. On each of them we write down a serial number.
  2. Buttons of the cash machine. We measure the dimensions of the calculator and mark it on the box. Cut out the corresponding hole. From below, with the help of adhesive tape, we fasten the calculator so that the buttons look out.
  3. Cash drawer. From the side of the box, make a cut and remove the bottom. From here, a plastic container will act as a cash drawer.
  4. Cut out a window for the paper reel on the side. We string the coil onto a pencil. We attach it with tape to the box from the inside. In this case, the coil should look out on the surface. We cut strips of paper and wind them on a coil. The edges of the paper peek out over the top of the cash register. This way the seller can issue a check to the buyer.
  5. Cut out buttons from the remnants of cardboard, which we will fill and decorate the surface of the cash register.
  6. To make a cash register for money, like in a store, colorful and interesting, it needs to be painted. We use bright felt-tip pens and paints. The body can be painted yellow, the buttons can be painted pink or red.
  7. Leave the painted parts to dry completely. After that, we proceed to the assembly of the trading machine. We fix the display, buttons with hot glue.
