Take a cardboard sheet and draw a trapezoid on it and cut the shape out of the cardboard. This trapezoid needs to be small in size but not tiny. See the picture below for reference. Using some glue, paste the trapezoid on the black sheet. Position the trapezoid on the ends of the lines you drew earlier. Draw some criss-cross marks on it with a pencil to make it look authentic. These lines should be light and not very dark and prominent. This completes the process of making the gondola.

Step 8: Stamping a Star On The Black Sheet
