Introduction: DIY Shuriken Throwing Stars
Make functional Shuriken throwing stars out of cheap tin disks from a hardware store.
Step 1: Materials
First off, I assume NO Responsibility for injuries you inflict on yourself or others in the making of/use of this item.
Materials You'll Need:
1.Grip-Right Fasteners tin disks ( I don't have the box to them anymore, but they're about 2-3" in diameter and you can get them at Home Depot ect for a few dollars a box(of 100ish))
Step 2: First Cut
First, cut 4 slits into the disk at 90 degrees from each other. Make sure not to cut all the way to the center.
Step 3: Second Cut
Next, cut another 4 slits in between the first 4.
Step 4: Bending
Now, bend every other leaf on the star.
Step 5: Third Cut
Now cut points in the extending leaves.
Step 6: Flattening
Now, hammer the star flat to make it easier to throw
Step 7: Final Notes
Now you're done! Try googling for throwing techniques or something.
Since this metal is very thin, it is prone to bending when thrown at a hard surface.
If you have any sharp egdes like these, throw it away! If you're not careful the star will dig into your hand when you try to throw it.
