Step 1: Collect Materials & Cut to Size
First, we need to cut the paper into a square (if you already know how to do this, skip to step 2.) To do this, fold diagonally so to adjacent sides line up. There should a rectangle on one side. Cut it off, unfold the paper, and you will be left with a square.
Step 2: Make the Basic Shapes
Fold each half toward eachother.
Fold the top piece's top-right corner and the bottom piece's bottom-left corner down. Then, fold the top piece's top-left corner and the bottom piece's lower-right corner up.
Step 3: Finish Both Pieces
Step 4: Combining the Two Pieces
Turn over the semi-assembled product. Fold the tips in, crease, and then tuck them into the remaining slots.
You will be left with a strong throwing star. The tips come out very sharp, although they weaken with each hit.
There are many different methods to throwing these. You can throw it like a Frisbee, a playing card, etc.
**NOTE: I strongly recommend not to throw these towards people or animals, as the tips could easily cause eye damage, as well as many other injuries.**
