Hi,

In this Instructable I will show how to make a cool origami ninja star or shuriken. If you are having problems tell me in the comments section.

Step 1: Materials

You will need 2 pieces of square paper, preferably printer paper or construction paper, but you can use any type of paper you like. I used 6-inch construction paper.

Step 2:

Fold the top of the paper down on both sections. Then do it again.

Step 3:

Fold both of them in half horizontally, and unfold.

Step 4:

For the left piece, fold the left side up, aligning it with the fold you made in the previous step. For the right piece, fold the left side down.

Step 5:

Follow the photos.

Step 6:

Flip them over.

Step 7:

Fold the corners like so.

Step 8:

Orient the papers like in the photos.

Step 9:

Tuck in the uppermost flap into the one on the right.

Step 10:

Tuck the bottom flap into the left one.

Step 11:

Flip over.

Step 12:

Tuck in the right flap into the space between the upper and lower flaps. Then do the same with the left flap.

Step 13:

You are done! Make more of them using different colors, they look very cool when flying.

I made a keychain with them. It looks amazing! I punched a hole in one of the edges and put a paper clip on it. So cool.

It's just that the folding part is driving me crazy! I don't understand which flap to tuck into where or what corner to fold into which place... Please help!

Almost every other one is vague and actually built wrong. This one tells you what to do and is built correct. Good job.
