Mini katanas


I thought the dragonslayer would want to have some katanas so I made a set for him. And I included it in the template so you can make a miniature set of deadpool katanas.

Let's Get Started!

Print up the template

Print up the template. The first thing we are going to do is make the katanas. Everything for them is on this first page.

Cut out these five pieces.





Tape the pieces together

And tape pieces one through four together to form the sword.






Trace onto foamboard

Place that template diagonally onto foamboard and trace around it. Do this twice for one Katana.






The pieces

And also trace the tsuba (guard) doing it twice.

These four pieces make up one complete katana.





Trace again

Repeat this whole tracing process on a second sheet of foamboard so you can make your second katana.
