Step 1. Trace

Spread the cardboard on a flat surface and place your plate or container on top and, with the help of a pencil, draw its circumference on the cardboard.

Step 2. Crop

Take your scissors and cut out the circumference you drew. Now draw a cross on this circumference with the support of the ruler and open a hole in the entire center, with the help of the tips of the scissors.

Step 3. Redraw

Trace with your ruler and pencil on the cardboard circle, the diagonals that are needed so that there are 8 divisions. With the help of the pen, highlight each of the portions so that they look clear.

Step 4. Cut

Take square pieces of cardboard or colored paper and draw on them the triangles (portions) of the same average as those of the spinner, cut them out and start gluing them on each division of the cardboard, trying to leave the hole in the middle uncovered. You will already have your roulette lined.

Step 5. Draw

Draw an arrow on a piece of paper and cut it out. Stick this figure to the clip and now attach it to the removable lead of the ball, hooking it. Finally pass this lead through the hole you drew on the cardboard. Draw on each portion a penance, surprise or whatever you want it to have, and voila, your roulette is ready to play!
