Take a piece of paper the size of your sword and tape it so it stays rolled.

Step 3: Attaching to the Thing

Like i said i cant remember how i made it but attach your rolled paper to your on started( i think it is basically a duct tape bracelet with a clip locked in to a luggage lock ,lock end covered by tape)Put tape one the inside of the paper and Starter.

Step 4: And So It Begines

Cover the paper in duct tape. Do it well it is on the sword it makes smoothing the tape out easier.

Step 5: Next Roll of Paper

For the next roll of paper just slide it into the end of the first. Then repeat the covering of the paper.

Step 6: Bottem

No, because then the duct tape would stick to the sword

"attach your rolled paper to your on started" what is this supposed to mean?

itsme242 (author)secatuderteder2009-03-09

I made a duck tape circle first then the rest of the sheath. So it means to attach your paper roll to that starting piece.

I made a sheath similar to this, but it was poster board and has two rings on the back of it for attaching a shoulder strap.

damn I was gonna post this! Oh well, kudos on the Instructable! Mine was just made from duct tape "fabric", not paper and tape. Yours is much stiffer, which I think is a good thing.
