I show how to make a paper throwing star/shuriken. It is an easy model to make but when folding try to make the edges as straight as possible for best results. It can be made from any type of paper regular printer paper and magazine paper works well. Two different colours of paper can give it a more interesting look. The origami ninja star/shuriken is fun and easy to fold, its weight, form and shape is evenly balanced all around which makes it excellent for throwing. Be careful when throwing it because the corners are pointy and sometimes the flight path is unpredictable.
A shuriken is a traditional Japanese concealed weapon that was generally used for throwing, and some stabbing and slashing. Shuriken are commonly known in the West as throwing stars or ninja stars although they were originally designed in many different shapes.
