Learn to make an origami ninja star! These easy origami stars are folded from two pieces of paper. Also called a ‘shuriken’ throwing star. It’s super easy to make these!
I’ve always loved these little origami ninja stars! There is something really appealing about the shape of the star. I find making these very satisfying, maybe because they have some weight to them.
This traditional method results in a nice thick, heavy result. I have seen some other versions where you use half of a square sheet of paper, which would be a good idea if you are using thicker paper.
The ninja star shape appears a lot in origami designs, you’ll probably have already noticed! One of my favourites is my origami ninja star card holders, which hold cards or place cards – tutorial here. Check further down for a photo tutorial I created a few years ago.
I also have a photo tutorial for this model here.
