Step 3: Add the Other 2 Blades With the Cutting Edges in the Same Direction.

    Yes, just make sure that the wide ones. This helps the star fly better. 
    Please be safe! 

    Sure, but it would be a lot harder to throw because the extra blades would get in the way.

    You could be more likely to cut yourself when you throw it.
