It is best to use A3 size paper to make a sword. To make a weapon that has a more attractive appearance, you can take the colored paper.

  1. Then make a square out of a sheet of paper. To do this, you need to bend any of the corners to the opposite side, and then tear off carefully along the bending line or cut off with scissors strip, which remains.
  2. Turn the square colored side down and fold it in half. Make sure that the ends of the corners fit exactly. And again, bend in half to get a folded square.
  3. Then straighten one side to form a triangle, do the same with the other side.
  4. After, unfold the triangle, turn and make a fold line on all sides and diagonals, folding it in half and diagonally.
  5. Fold the sheet in half to form a square. Then you need to bend the two sides to the middle. Bend thoroughly and then unfold. Spread the corners further, and bend the sides to make the figure look like a diamond.
  6. Next, we need to fold the sides to the center to form a shape similar to a pointed plane. Flip the figure over.
  7. Fold the backside vertically, and then bend the sides inside, to get a long triangle.
  8. Flip the handicraft again. Fold the side parts to the center. Make a similar action with the other part.
  9. In the next steps, you need to make a handle and a cross for our sword. To do this, you need to make the crosshead thin, similar to a real weapon, by multiple bending.
  10. You need to bend the parts of the workpiece to the right and left. Then, you can bend the tips beautifully so that the sword has an attractive appearance.
