Cut the 53X13cm rectangle diagonally in two triangles. Roll the cardboard piece into a spiral, leaving a 3cm space at the centre to insert the ribbons. Stick the ribbons at the bottom of the engines.
Cut 2 X50cm of the elastic band, form 2 loops to make two straps and stick them at the back of the propulsion system.
Customize and maintain the straps by sticking the blue corrugated cardboard pieces.
