Cut out you emblems carefully using the grey guidelines. Older crafters may want to cut out in more detail. Arrange and stick down your emblems and decorations. Cut out a band of silver card about 3cm wide and 23cm long. Staple it to the back of your shield from side to side. This handle will bend your shield to a nice curve. Stick some sticky tape over the staple ends to stop them getting caught or scratching. Team your shield with a sword, helmet and tunic to make a knight’s costume.
