Step 1: Begin With a Rectangular Piece of Paper

Ordinary loose paper or construction paper will do. We will make a square piece of paper from this. If you're already starting with a square piece of origami paper, skip the next two steps.

Step 2: ​Fold the Diagonal of the Square

Fold the top right hand corner diagonally down so the top of the paper lines up with the left side, forming a point at the top right corner.

Step 3: Remove the Extra Piece

Cut or carefully tear along the edge so you are left with a square of paper.

Step 4: Fold the Square in Half

The fold should be parallel to the edges.

Step 5: Fold Each Half Once Again

The fold should be parallel to the edges.

Step 6: Fold the Ends

Fold each half once again and then fold the end diagonally, so the edges line up. Repeat this fold, on each end of each strip, making sure the folds are oriented as shown

Step 7: Make the Triangle Fold

Fold the end on the diagonal again. You should end with a big triangle facing you and two smaller triangles facing away from you. Repeat this same fold on each end of each strip. Make sure the orientations go opposite one another, as shown.

Step 8: Joining the Parts

Turn over only the piece on the left and arrange the two parts, as shown.

Step 9: Put the Right Piece on Top of the Left Piece

There should be a square in the center of each piece that lines up, but if you can't find it yet, don't worry. Just line up the middles

Step 10: Assembling Phase

Fold the uppermost point inwards on the diagonal and tuck the point into the pocket. Fold the bottom point upwards on the diagonal and tuck the point into the pocket.

Step 11: Repeat for the Final Fold

Fold the left and final point on the diagonal and tuck it into the last pocket. You may have to coax a little to get it tucked in.

Step 12: Enjoy Your Ninja Star
