Airsoft Armored Vest

HI, this is my first instructables. This is my airsoft armored vest made of paper. it is actually made of paper

Here is the list of supplies you will need:

1. 9x12in paper of your choice ( I used construction paper )

2. a stapler

3. your choice of tape ( I used packing tape for mine )

4. velcro

5. scissors

Step 1: The Plate

The main part of the vest is made of folded then weaved paper that is folded lengthwise twice then taped. You will need nine pieces for the plate. This makes a 9x12" plate

Step 2: Shoulder Straps

The shoulder straps are made of a double layered paper. You will need to cut these out so here are the dimensions

5" tall x 3 3/4" wide

the sharpest of the three angled parts is a 2x2" but there's a section that's needed to attach this to the plate. the next one is a 2x3" angle, and the next is a 5x1 3/4" angle. the straight piece in between these will depend on how long you want the straps to be.

Step 3: The Side Strap

The side straps are also made of a layered paper and is 5" tall, the length will also depend on how long you want it to be as well.
