Step 1: Materials

1.Bunch of A4 sheets or any other type of paper
2. scissors
3.plaster
4. Broom sticks
5.cardboard


Step 2: Making One Part of It.

1. take a square paper
2. fold all the corners towards the center
3. Fold the 2 opposite corners towards the centre ( see the pic or watch the video for clarity)
4.now fold the bottom flap backwards 
5.now join the left and right flaps together... 
you are done with one

You need to make those 15 for a A4 paper and it may vary for other size of paper.

For best results WATCH THE VIDEO! or THE IMAGES .

Step 3: Joining the Pieces

After you have made 15 of them now you need to connect all of them.. for this you need to insert the opposite sides of the two flaps..check out the pictures or the video...

and when you join all the pieces together now plaster all of then as shown. on both the sides
 then you are done with normal one

Step 4: To Make It More Realistic

Sick broom sticks for each and every edge. and fill the gap in the middle with a cardboard and stick the broom sticks and the cardboard with plaster..  now it looks more realistic and looks good :)

    Broom Stick are about four feet long.
    I'm sure you mean the straw bristles that are from the actual broom?

    u need to cut the broom sticks to the required size

    Wait, broomsticks? Do you mean toothpicks or something smallish that would fit on that size of paper?

    I think you mean the straw from a broom, yes? A broomstick is the (very large) handle part of the broom... at least here in America that is what we think of with that term.

    you can just use any other replacement for that. in india broomsticks are the best because they have very light weight and enough stiffness..... you can even use the straws ( the one which you drink juice) ...

    I am quite sure what is meant is this. If you consider type character broom diagrams:

    Like this
    -----------E


    -----------E
    ^ here ^ to here
    is the broom stick

    -----------E
    ^and these are the bristles, which used to be made of straw
    (like a dried grass for animal bedding, not a plastic tube for drinking)

    I say this as I suspect there is some translation issues causing confusion.

    You stick the broom sticks on one side only or both sides?

    Not really a boomerang. Just a fancy frisbee.
    Any throwing disk will come back when thrown at such a steep angle.
