2. Cut out your sword with the help of an adult and sellotape the folded sides together
3. Wrap the blade of the sword with tin foil
4. Just below the pommel (the round bit at the top) fold a cut toilet roll around the sword to create a place where you will hold the sword. Tape the toilet roll to hold it in place
5. Next is to make the hilt (the bit that protects your hand!). Cut a rectangle 10cm x 6cm and then ask an adult to cut a slot in the middle of it that is approx 3cm x 1.5cm.
6. Slide the hilt onto the sword and attach it to the toilet roll
7. Paint the handle of the sword and the hilt
