Follow the instructions below to make this Origami Transforming Ninja Star
This 8 point ninja star (or 8 sided ninja star) is one of the coolest origami you’ll ever learn to fold. What makes this shuriken so special is that it can also transform into some sort of round blade or frisbee. This makes the shuriken a very dangerous under cover weapon. Oh yeah, it’s dangerous because the points are very sharp, so watch where you throw it.
I know it looks hard to make, but this transforming origami ninja star is actually quite easy. Just follow the instructions carefully and you’ll be able to make one. You’re going to need two pieces of square paper. Ready? Let’s start. Check out the origami ninja star when you’re done with this one.
Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper, but if you only have regular 8.5×11 paper,
follow these instructions to make a square sheet.
Then fold the paper in half two times and cut the paper into four squares.
Step 2: With one of the four squares, fold it in half by folding the upper left corner to the bottom right corner, then unfold.
Step 3: Fold in half diagonally the other way, then unfold.
Step 4: Fold the top half backwards, then unfold.
Step 5: Poke the center with your finger so that it pops in.
Step 6: Fold the upper left corner to the center, but don’t fold pass the center divider.
Step 7: Fold the bottom left corner to the center.
Step 8: Fold the upper half to the lower half while inverting the right crease to the center.
Step 9: Make 7 more of these for a total of 8.
Step 10: Put one blade between the double flaps of another blade. Just like in the picture, the black blade is placed between the flaps of the grey blade.
Step 11: Fold in the flaps of the left (grey) blade to lock the right (black) blade into place. Then pull down the right blade so it locks at the end.
Step 12: Add another blade to the flaps of the right one and also lock that into place.
Step 13: Keep adding and locking blades untill all 8 blades are used.
Step 14: Lock the last to the first blade and you have yourself a frisbee.
When locking the last blade, make sure to only lock the sides of the first blade and not accidentally lock the second blade also.
Step 15: We will now transform the frisbee into an 8 point ninja star.
With both hands, hold opposite sides and begin pushing in towards the center.
Step 16: Now you have an 8 point ninja star.
