Everyone has cardboard, it just goes to waste.  So why not have some fun with it? This is a step- by - step instructable that shows how to make a sword out of cardboard. If you, the viewer like to give me any helping advice, (Since this is my first XD), I will gladly accept it. So here's what you need.

First you need to make the blade. When making it (you can be creative with it) remember to have the small piece sticking out, it's needed later. Cut it out and use it as a template to make two more. (A total of three) Then cut the extra piece off one and glue them together. The one with the extra piece cut off must be in the center!!! 

Step 2: The Handle

This is quick. Cut out the shape you want and make sure it fits in the gap you created in step one. If it does, use it as a template and cut out two more, but shorten them because of the support the middle one is receiving. Glue the longest one in the middle inside the two sections and the shorter ones to it's side and vola you have the handle connected!

Step 3: Fine Details

Now to make it look pretty. Cut out two cardboard strips and glue them on to the sword to cover up where you made the attachment, paint and enjoy!

this is a good idea… i'm gonna do this sometime.
