How to Build a Paper Tower With 2 Sheets of Paper

Make a paper tower to complete a paper castle scene or simply to impress your friends. This paper tower comes with the option to create battlements at the top of the tower and is as tall as two sheets of paper. You can use plain white paper to create this tower, but cardstock works even better; the heavier the paper is, the sturdier the tower will be standing upright.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 sheet of paper or cardstock

  • Scissors

  • Tape

Step 1

Roll one sheet of paper into a cylinder and tape the edges together.

Step 2

Roll the second sheet of paper into a cylinder and tape the edges together.

Step 3

Cut out squares along the top of the cylinder, cutting a square every few centimeters. These cuts create the battlements at the top of the tower.

Step 4

Tape the second cylinder to the top of the first cylinder, joining the edges together with tape.
