What You need:-
2 different coloured Cardboard box's for the chess pieces
1 Piece of cardboard for the chess board.
Chess pieces templates (download here)
Chess Board template (download here )
A printer to print out chess piece templates
Double sided Sticky Tape
Step 1: Make the Pieces
After printing them out cut around the piece roughly then stick it on the the cardboard.
Cut around the edge of pieces using a knife.
Do the same until you have all the pieces you need for your chess set
Step 2: Make Them Stand Up
To do this cut out a small piece of cardboard to act as a base.
To attach the base to the piece use a tooth pick pushed threw the base and in to the pieces excess tooth pick
Step 3: The Board
You will have to cut off the top and bottom squares from the print out which in fact are not square but rectangles. You will have to cut off the white strip down the side (if this isn't clear I've labled the picture which should help)
Once that is done tape the four parts of the board to a sutible size pieces of cardboard.
