Introduction: Turning A4 Paper Into a Square

Pictures from "How to Make a Paper Ninja Star"

This isn't qualified as an "origami creation" in my book, but just a tutorial on how to make A4 paper into a square, as it is required in many of my instructables.

You will need:



Step 1: Fold the Corner

Turn the paper horizontally. Take the top left corner of the paper and bring the whole vertical side onto the bottom side and fold.

Step 2: Cut the End Off

Take the scissors. Cut along the right edge of the triangle fold from before so the end gets cut off.

Step 3: Finish!

As you can see, this one was very short because it's more of a fold tutorial rather than a creation. Now when you unfold you should have an 8.5 inch by 8.5 inch square that is used in the following instructables by me:

Ninja Star (Original)

Paper Rabbit
