Paper cars made fun!

December 20, 2021


A creative winter vacation with Nissan


As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, we hope you’re all wrapping up warm and staying healthy. In this latest Nissan Story, we would like to introduce a special winter holiday project: Nissan paper crafts. This project allows you to make and decorate a scale-size paper model of popular Nissan cars. It’s a creative and fulfilling way to spend time at home this winter!

These paper crafts may look simple, but the process of cutting out and putting the car together poses some fun challenges. We suggest you use slightly thicker paper and quick-drying adhesive (such as wood glue) for the best, most impressive results. Try it yourself or with your kids. We’re sure that, once you get started, you won’t be able to stop!

Here at Nissan, we wish you all a wonderful winter vacation. Please drive safely.

Look out for upcoming Nissan Stories in the New Year!
