Step 2: Construct your LEGO bodies
First, detach the sides of your tri-fold foam board by using your yardstick and X-Acto knife and cutting along the seams (shown as dashed lines).
Next, cut the angle for the LEGO body by measuring in 1.5 inches on your foam core’s narrow edge, then use your yardstick and X-Acto knife to cut down to the opposite corner (as shown by the dashed lines).
Then cut a rectangle toward the top of each sidepiece for the armholes.
When you have all 4 pieces ready to go (front, back and 2 sides), use your duct tape to join them together. Be sure to tape along the inside seam; that way your tape won’t show.
