You will end up with something like this.

Step 10: Transform

Push the edges in carefully two sides at a time, and get closer until there is no gap in the middle.

    What a ninja star!!!

    If it is made with very sharp creases and with origami paper instead of the sticky notes yes. It still flies if made with sticky notes but not nearly as well.
