This is an 8 point ninja star that you can make out of any 8 pieces of square paper (Post-it notes are just convenient and about the right size)

P.S. Sorry about the Purple Post-its but I didn't think the yellow would provide much contrast, and please disregard the incorrect time stamps.

P.P.S. this is my first Instructable so be gentle. ;þ

Step 1: The Prep

You will need 8 Post-it notes for each star and with each you will be making the following shape.

Start by folding the Post-it note (sticky part on the top) in half away from the sticky side then flatten it back out

Then fold the 2 sticky corners to the center (like making a paper air plane) this should cover the sticky area so it wont be a pain later. Now fold in half along the crease

The next step is not hard but it's kinda hard to explain via text so hopefully the video or images will do it, but basically you are going to valley fold the square end into it's self so you end up with a sorta wonky diamond.

Now repeat 7 more times.

That is just NARLY !!! (:
LOL! Someone is auctioning these off on Listia.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!soo cooOOOOOl :)<br>
i just got done making my first one and it works amazingly. i had so much fun making it. thanx to whoever made the print out instructions =)

During construction, I can't get it to stay together!!!
when i push in it crumples up wat did i do wrong?
probably nothing,you just have to be kinda careful when pushing it in the first time... just don't push to hard and try it from a few different spots it should work out.
When I push on the sides, it just crumples up. What did I do wrong?

OMG&nbsp;THIS&nbsp;IS&nbsp;AWESOME!!!! i gonna make a lot!!! also, wouldn't it be cool if u had 7 rainbow colors and one white? :D
well if you wanted to split the spectrum up you could do <br /> <br /> red<br /> amber<br /> chartreuse<br /> green<br /> cyan<br /> blue<br /> purple<br /> magenta<br /> <br /> and have a fairly accurate repeating color wheel<br /> <br />
really cool! When i was building it, it didn't look right. I realized that it only had 7 points!<br />
you did so good! i did this 2! with purple sticky notes also!
luv it so much<br />

now i get it lol
i dont get step one on part 4. how do you get the rombus shape???
if you throw it hard enough, centrifugal force will transform it
Hey its a PARALELLAGRAM. but ive got and easier way to do it
Step 2 is confusing Can you explain it better to me?
I put tabs on and it always falls apart.
<strong>i made 4 yesterday and 2 today!</strong><br/><br/>luv it<strong></strong><br/>
<strong>guudy guudy<em><strong>greaty teayddfjihjgtl,<em></em></strong></em></strong><br/>
cool cool i stole like 120 pink , yellow , blue ,and black square sheets from my teacher lol i made one out of blue and yellow and now every one in school wants them so now im charging lol
<em>LOL..how much?</em><br/>
LOL!!!!!!!! that is the same thing that happened to me I charge them .50 cents per star. And now they want to know how to make it
haha nice
its fun but its hard to keep together any tips on that?
use larger paper
<strong>actually, i use post its</strong><br/>
I tryed to staple it and it works good
where did you staple it
the lines in the inner octigon
there shouldn't be any issue with it staying together, or at least I never had one come apart on me. Maybe try a different weight paper that holds it crease better?
i made this and took it to school everybody loved it
it's called a pinwheel ring, the origami ninja star has four points
the 8th one just doesnt make a fit help?
WWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW... dude how did you find out about this, also you are going to poke your eye out!! lol...
somehow when I made mine it ended up with 7 points instead of 8 but it works well all the same... great Instructable
