Make ninja stars to NOT throw around the office.
WARNING! This is a potentially dangerous project, both during the making process and what you do afterwards with it. Do not throw these at, near, around, within-sight-of pepole or animals. If you are under 18, or are uncapable of making sound decisions, do not follow these instructions.
If, for any reason, your harm yourself or someone else with this project, stop and think about what an idiot you are for actually making something that is so dangerous, then apply pressure with this project to your wrists and drag toward the inner elbow, because you are too stupid to live.
Step 1: Aquire Materials
Materials are as follows:
- Four (4) X-acto blades (standard size, nothing fancy)
- Double Sided tape (sticky on both sides)
- Regular Tape (Scotch Tape is good)
Step 2: Arrange the first two blades
Place two blades against each other at the base with the sharp bits facing away from each other.
Step 3: Apply double sided tape
Cut a piece of double sided tape and place it squarely over the bases of the two blades (like the blue square in the drawing shows)
Step 4: Place second two blades
Take the second two blades and place them on top of the tape, arranged perpendicular to the first two blades, bases together, with the sharp bits facing out.
Step 5: Cut some tape
Take a piece of regular tape thats about three times as long as the middle area of your star. Cut opposite corners off so it looks like the image. Make a second piece of tape look like a mirror image of the first.
Step 6: Tape it together
Place the first piece of tape on the star as show in the left image. Then wrap the sides around to the back and press the tape down firmly. Do the same thing on the back with the second piece of tape, but place it perpendicular to the first. This will hold your star together fairly well.
Step 7: Done! (and throwing tips)
There your have it! You're well on your way to becoming a master ninja of the office.
Good Targets: cork boards, bullitin boards empty walls
Bad Targets: people, animals
To throw, hold the tip of one of the blades between the thumb and index finger and then flick your wrist to throw (just like a frisbee). With some practice, you can hit a target from 5 to 15 feet away.
