This is one of the classic origami many of the kids before the computer era enjoyed making. I remembered this while watching Ninja Assassin on the television the other day. It’s easy and fun to throw around which we could teach kids and let them play with.
What you’ll need: 2 pieces Square Construction Paper for one star
Fold the paper crosswise twice.
Fold it in half horizontally.
Fold one side of the one piece up until the fold mark you have made in the previous step. Then fold one side of the other piece downward, again, aligning the nearer edge to the fold mark previously made.
Fold their opposite sides in the other direction, like in the photo below.
Flip them over…
and fold the corners as such.
Put one piece over the other like so.
Fold the corner of the paper that is under, and tuck it under the diagonal edge of the paper above.
Do the same with the other corner of the paper above.
Flip them over and fold the corners of the other piece of paper and tuck them under the slots in the middle of the other paper.
And it’s ready to be thrown!
