In this instructable, you'll learn how to make a shuriken also known as a ninja star out of paper.

Step 1: Get One Piece of Origami Paper

Get one piece of origami paper. Any square piece of paper will work too. You only need one piece of paper. I know there are two in the picture, but you only need one!

Step 2: Cut in Half

Fold the paper in half, then cut so you have a reference.

Step 3: Fold in Half

Fold both pieces in half the long way.

Step 4: Fold It in Half the Other Way

Fold it in half the other way

Step 5: Unfold

Unfold the last fold you made.

Step 6: Fold the Top Half on Both Pieces

Fold the top half on both pieces, but do it in opposite directions.

Step 7: Fold the Bottom Half of Both Pieces

Fold the bottom half of both pieces in opposite directions.

Step 8: Flip

Turn over both pieces.

Step 9: Fold the Two Squarish Pieces Into Triangles

Fold the squarish pieces at the top and bottom in into triangles on both pieces.

Step 10: Fold in the Triangles

Fold the triangles into the body of both pieces.

Step 11: Put the Pieces on Top of Each Other

Put the pieces of top of each other.

Step 12: Fold in the Flaps

Fold the triangles into the pockets of the body.

Step 13: Now You're Done!

Enjoy your shuriken :)

<p>step 12 is sooo annoying for me </p><p>Got a square post it note so it was small</p>
<p>i cant make it</p>
<p>I made it!, I also made different colors with them mixing. If u stitch the sides they become heavier and they make them more accurate</p>
<p>I Made It!</p>
I made it, but, from step six onwards folded them the same way.
<p>I love it!! I made it. It looks great!!!</p>
<p>i dont know how to do the last bit</p>
<p>Ehhhhhhhhhhhh.... I didn't do the best, but this tutorial was gr</p>
<p>This was hard and easy at the same time</p>
Figured it out
Howbdo you fold the flaps
<p>i like stars(shuriken)</p>
could you do this with index cards?
Yes, but it would be VERY hard to fold in the flaps to the body, and it come out VERY small.
OK, thanks! People did this in my grade and I think they might have used index cards. (I wouldn't know becuase I never made one and they got banned from my grade. My dean even went room to room at took them himself!)
