Step 1: Get One Piece of Origami Paper

Fold the paper in half, then cut so you have a reference.

Step 3: Fold in Half

Fold both pieces in half the long way.

Step 4: Fold It in Half the Other Way

Fold it in half the other way

Step 5: Unfold

Unfold the last fold you made.

Step 6: Fold the Top Half on Both Pieces

Fold the top half on both pieces, but do it in opposite directions.

Step 7: Fold the Bottom Half of Both Pieces

Fold the bottom half of both pieces in opposite directions.

Step 8: Flip

Turn over both pieces.

Step 9: Fold the Two Squarish Pieces Into Triangles

Fold the squarish pieces at the top and bottom in into triangles on both pieces.

Step 10: Fold in the Triangles

Fold the triangles into the body of both pieces.

Step 11: Put the Pieces on Top of Each Other

Put the pieces of top of each other.

Step 12: Fold in the Flaps

Fold the triangles into the pockets of the body.

Step 13: Now You're Done!

Enjoy your shuriken :)
