This Is a sword made out of cardboard (for more strength), and decorated with Duck Tape for style (and also a little bit of strength. When cutting the cardboard you may want to use a razor blade (with a parent's promission) for a faster and straighter cut.

Silver or Gray Duck Tape
Another Color of Duck Tape
Scissors or a Razor Blade
Cut out a long piece of cardboard , about 8 in. wide. The height is for what suits you best. This will be the blade.
Fold the cardboard piece in half so that it is thinner, not shorter.
Cut a point out of one end, to be the tip of the sword. And on the other end, cut out a stub to be the handle.
By now, the cardboard may be wanting to unfold, use a little tape to keep it from folding, or tape the entire blade up with the silver/gray duck tape.
Cut out two identical trapezoids, to serve as the top of the handle. Tape one on top of the blade (just above the handle) and tape the other on the opposite side.
