Paper Spinner




Introduction: Paper Spinner

This is how you make paper spinners. They're cool, and you can color and design them however you want to. You can also throw them like ninja stars if you put one in between your index and middle finger and flick your wrist. Each one you make might spin a little differently than the last one. Leave me comments and tell me how it is. Also, check out my paper airplane if you like. Type in "a good paper airplane" in the search bar.
