Let's start making it!


Drawing out the design

This is just a good tip for you if you make projects. I started by doing some drawings. It helps to understand how something is made, what it looks like and what the relative scale and size of the parts are.







Cut out the template

Print up the template and cut out the parts. There are five of them.








The five pieces of the template

Here are the five pieces.









Tape pieces together

Now tape parts A and B together like this.









Trace onto foam board

Now place all those parts on your foamboard or cardboard and trace them. Trace the handle piece "B" twice. We need two of those. The rest of the parts we only need one of.







Cut out the parts

Now cut those parts out.








Will's Tips on Cutting Foam board: 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.



Cut out the ornamental work

I give you the ornamental work for the dagger. Cut those pieces out. There are two pages of them. Cut out all the pieces, all six of them - three on each page.

The two pages may look identical but they are not. They are mirrored! This is because you need the exact opposite pattern for the other side of the dagger.





The various parts

Ok, here are all the parts including two you can't quite see at the bottom edge of the picture. Let's put it all together.








NextOkay, everything is cut and ready! Let's continue and make the ebony dagger
