Step 6: Go online to find and download an image of your favorite Game of Thrones house sigil. Or, if the gods have blessed you with a hand of gold, you can create your own.

Step 7: Print 2 sigils. Make one sigil ¼ an inch larger than the other.

Step 8: Cut out the larger sigil. Do not try to cut it with your sword, it will not work and you will probably hurt yourself.

Step 9: Place the larger sigil on the crafting foam, outline it, and cut the crafting foam along the outline.
