Will's Tips on Cutting Foam board and using smaller foam board sheets : Don't try to cut all the way through it in one swipe. Use a really sharp blade and make three passes. the first pass just cuts the top layer of paper. Second pass cuts the foam and the third pass cuts through the bottom layer of foam.

If you don't have large foam board

I used a very large sheet of foam board for this project. Makes it easy for me. But you might just have the normal size sheets (20x30 inches). The template doesn't fit on those sheets in one piece. What do you do?

Diagram explaining the assembly

Here is what you do! The top two swords are what I made right? My foam board is large enough. With the smaller foam board you should make the bottom two swords. So each sword length is made of two pieces. So when you glue all four pieces (1,2,3 and 4) it is nice and strong and looks right.

I have dashed lines in the template for you if you need it.

Note that this drawing shows Elucidator. That's ok. The same technique applies to Dark Repulser.

Let's Begin!!!

Cut out the template pieces

Print up the template and cut out pieces A,B,C,D and E. These make up the sword body.

Tape the five pieces together

Tape these five pieces together. They are labeled as to which one attaches to which. Very easy to do.

The template is assembled

The pieces are taped together.

Trace template onto foam board

Put that template on foamboard and trace it. Trace two of them.

Cut the foam board pieces out

Go ahead and cut those pieces out.

Check for a match

Put one on top of the other. They might mis-match like this. That is ok. Flip one over and try again. They will match.
