Step 1: Fold Your Paper
Take the two pieces of paper and fold them in half from the top to the bottom
If you are using one piece of paper then just fold the one paper in half
Step 2: Cut Paper in Two From the Line
Cut both papers in half making 4 pieces
Cut the one paper in half
Step 3: Fold the Papers HOTDOG Style
Fold all four papers from the left side of the paper to the right
Fold just the two papers if you started with one
Step 4: Fold Corners
Take one of the pieces of paper take one corner and fold it inwards. Then take the opposite corner of the paper and do it again. Repeat for all papers
Step 5: Place on Top of Each Other
Take one paper of each color and place them on each other using the flat part of the papers
It doesn't matter which paper goes on top
Step 6: Folding Inwards
Fold which ever paper that is on the bottom in so the triangular part overlaps the middle part of the top layer.
Step 7: Continue Folding Inward
Fold the next triangular on the right on top of the first fold
Step 8: Again
Fold in again with the other side of the paper that was on the bottom.
Step 9: Last One
This step is a little tricky but isn't hard.
You have to put the last part into the first fold after you do that it will stay in place and your spinner is done
Step 10: The Spinner Part
The last thing you need to do is fold the end product from the corners. This makes it so there is a small point so the paper can spin
