First let me say this is not my original idea and unfortunately I do not know who to credit. I saw a post by Shina Saechao in the Facebook group Cricut Design Space (it's a closed group, but you could request to join). Shina posted a link to her CDS file and the blog post For the Drivers by Christi's Creative Crew (where you will find cutting/scoring information if you do not have a Cricut® Explore and assembly instructions). Christi posted she saw delivery trucks created by Jill Hilliard on a SU consultant-only board so I dug a little deeper (searched the Internet) and found several variations, but I also found posts by Jill Hilliard on her blog Jill's Card Creations: The Getting My Gift on Day 1 - the mailman version and the Getting my Gift on Day 2 - the UPS man version. If you visit Jill's blog you will learn she "cased [this] from the score pal website". Despite not being able to credit the person that originated this idea I am happy someone came up with this idea and people shared it along the way.
Here are how some of my finished trucks turned out:

If you would like to use my imperfect (there are a couple of places that the line did not cut completely, e.g., like pop out paper dolls if you played with those as a child), but usable CDS file for the delivery truck, you will find it here.
The above image shows what the file will look like on screen (with some labels so it hopefully makes a little more sense). I used the white pieces from left to right then added the embellishments shown near the bottom.
To save myself some time writing, here are some photos I took while assembling the truck. Clicking on any photo will make it larger. If after looking at the photos and notes on them, you have questions about assembling the truck, please leave a comment below and I will try to update this post/reply in the comments with a better description.
