## Introduction: How to Make a Ninja Star Out of Notebook Paper!

• Making a ninja star from a sheet of paper is really simple if you follow these steps.

## Step 2: Making the Square.

• Take one corner of the triangle and fold it over until it meets he opposite edge, forming triangle.
• You should have a triangle and a rectangle portion left over after you complete this.
• Remove the rectangle piece by cutting or tearing it.

## Step 3: Fold Your Square in Half.

• Make a vertical fold in the square you just made. ( Hot dog style )

## Step 4: Making Rectangles

• Take your square and cut or tear along the crease you just made creating two rectangles.

## Step 7: Cross-Fold the Rectangles.

• Take one of the rectangles and grab the upper right corner of the piece of paper and fold it down to meet the middle crease.
• It should make a backwards "R" shape.
• Now take the lower left corner and fold it up to the middle crease.
• Your paper should now have a "Z" shape.
• After you complete one rectangle do the opposite for the other rectangle.
• The rectangles should mirror each other as shown in the image above.

## Step 8: Flip the Shapes Over.

• When you flip the shapes over they should make two squares with a parallelogram in the middle as shown in the image above.

## Step 9: Fold the Top and Bottom Squares of Both Pieces of Paper Inward for Make a Triangle.

• Fold the outermost corners of the squares and fold them diagonal to make a triangles.
• After you do this you should have a shape that has two triangles separated by a parallelogram.

## Step 10: Fold in the Triangles.

• Fold in the triangles over top of the parallelogram in the middle.
• You should now have two parallelograms.

## Step 11: Flip One of the Shapes Over.

• You should now have two parallelograms facing the same way.
• Your top shape should have the flaps facing downward.
• Your bottom shape should have flaps facing upwards.

## Step 12: Open the Flaps of the Bottom Shape.

• Rotate your bottom sheet so it makes a "Z" shape.
• Place the top shape on the bottom shape.
• Open the flaps of the top shape.
• The top shape's flaps should be facing away from you.
• The two shapes should be perpendicular to each other.

## Step 13: Tuck the Flaps of the Shapes Into Opposite Pockets.

• Take the tip of the bottom shape and tuck it into the top shape's pockets.
• Then apply pressure to the edges to create a crease that hold everything in place.

## Step 14: Flip the Figure Over and Repeat the Process Again.

• As you start fitting the traingles into the pockets, the ninja star form will begin taking its form.

## Step 15: Ninja Star!!

• You have sucessfully made a ninja star.
• Feel free to create designs to add your own style to it.
