This is just an origami throwing star. It's not that hard to make, and the pictures are pretty good. Fun to play with and throw at siblings!

Step 3: Making a unit

Pay close attention. Fold one of the ends up on the crease you just made to make it look like fig 1. Then do that for the other side to get fig 2. Flip that over and look at on of the flaps. Fold it over from fig 3 to fig 4. Do that for the other one to get a fig 5. After that flip it over. Then do what fig 6 says. Do that for the other side, and you should now have a fig 7. Make another one of these using the other half sheet of paper.

Step 4: Make a star out of useless flaps

Take the 2 units and place them like fig 1. Flip it over and fold this flap down in fig 2. Do that for fig 3, too. Fold the extras down to get a fig 4. Tuck in one flap into another like in fig 5. Push in completely to end up with a fig 7. Do that for the other side, too.

Step 5: DONE!

You have now just finished an origami throwing star! Have fun!

Try to be clearer next time.Don't use "figs". its kinda confusing.
is it just me or do these never fly well over long distances? someone needs to post an instructable on how to make one with a hole in the middle but still be paper. cutting a hole out of the middle takes too long and that is the only way to get them to fly straight.

nice, I used to make these in school and get in trouble. lol
I made a ton of these for my christmas tree last year and then lost them all before I had a chance to decorate the tree. Knowing me I put them somewhere very obvious.
