Fold an Origami Star (Shuriken)

Fold an Origami Star (Shuriken)


  • Cut the lines more sharp and make the creases more sharp
You don't have to go to a weapon store to have your very own "ninja star" or a "Shuriken". You can make one or several out of paper as a cheaper and safer alternative. It is also very fun to play with and a good project for you to do with your child.

    Begin with a rectangular piece of paper. Ordinary loose paper or construction paper will do. We will make a square piece of paper from this. If you're already starting with a square piece of origami paper, skip the next two steps.

    Fold the diagonal of the square. Fold the top right hand corner diagonally down so the top of the paper lines up with the left side, forming a point at the top right corner.

    Put the right piece on top of the left piece. There should be a square in the center of each piece that lines up, but if you can't find it yet, don't worry. Just line up the middles.

This video will show you how to make an origami star.

Tips

  • Make sure you put good strong creases on your ninja star. If you don't, the ninja star will not be bold and look as neat as it would and should be.
  • Never throw ninja star at eyes! The tips are sharp!
  • If you fold, crease and throw it properly, the star will fly like a real one.
  • The more neatly you cut and fold, the easier it will be to get everything lining up at the end so the points slip seamlessly into the pockets.
  • Make three or more stars at once and stack them so their shapes are almost lined up, but are spaced apart slightly. Grip them between your thumb and index finger and throw all the stars at once from your side to the front, like a frisbee.
  • To make better creases, put your thumbs fingernail and your index fingers fingernail and slide through the place you want to crease.
  • You can also decorate the ninja star using glitter glue markers, glitter pens etc.
  • No tape is necessary to make this star.
  • Works best with magazine paper.
  • If you push a matchstick through the center, you can make a top.

Warnings

  • Be careful when throwing the stars. You could even injure yourself.
  • Edges can be sharp, keep away from small children.
  • Do not throw this at people or animals.
  • Be careful when using scissors.
  • When folding, you may get a paper cut.

Things You'll Need

  • One sheet of 8.5 x 11" paper (aka A4 printing paper) or Origami paper (optional but preferred)
  • Scissors (optional)
  • Tape
