Get your ninja on, with origami ninja stars. Does anyone else remember these origami ninja stars from school? I remember some the kids used to fold these up and toss them around. OK, not exactly following school rules, but I remember it happening. These are also great for costumes and party decorations. To make an origami ninja star you will need 2 squares of paper. Only one side of each piece will be seen, so the color of the second side does not matter.
For the purposes of this tutorial, we are going to call the blue square of paper Paper A, and the orange square of paper Paper B. To begin, fold both pieces of paper in half and then unfold.
For both pieces of paper, fold the top down to the center fold mark, then fold the bottom up to the center fold mark, then fold in half on the center fold mark.
Fold the top left corner of Paper A down on a diagonal, then fold the bottom right corner up on a diagonal. Fold the bottom left corner of Paper B up on a diagonal, then fold the top right corner down on a diagonal.
Fold the right end of Paper A down to form a triangle.
