Hi, everyone! This is the first Origami Spotlight, which is where a cool origami found on the web is showcased here on Origami-Verse. Here is the Origami Griffin (Gryphon on the site). This one looks really cool!
This is a tutorial on how to make an origami Ninja Star.
First, fold a square sheet of paper in half. Unfold.
Cut along the ling created in the center where we creased the paper.
Take one half. Fold in half lengthwise so the rectangle is skinny.
Now, fold in half the other way so it's shorter. Unfold.
You must pay close attention to this step. Fold the top corner down so that the edge meets your crease (look at the picture). Fold the bottom the opposite way.
Now, do the same thing with the other half of the paper but fold the last step the opposite way (Look at picture).
Take one half. Flip it over. Like in the second picture, fold the "square" on the top so that it makes a "triangle". Repeat for the bottom "square". If you fold the other way the model will become a rhombus O_o. Not good ^_^. Repeat for your other half.
Now, take the top "triangle" of one of the model's halves and fold it down into the rest or the piece. Then do the same for the bottom (Look in the picture. I know, it's kinda confusing O_o ^_^.).
Repeat for the other half.
*THIS IS THE HARDEST PART!!! PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION AND FOLLOW THE PICTURES!!!* Put one half on top of the other as if they were "eating" each other. Tuck one flap into the opening in the first (LOOK AT THE PICTURE). Do for the second flap. Flip over and repeat for the other side.
(Sorry, the picture's blurry because I had to zoom and couldn't get close enough.) You're now finished with your Ninja Star! If you used printer paper it should be able to fly through the air (*IF YOU DO DECIDE To THROW IT YOU CANNOT THROW AT PEOPLE BECAUSE THE POINTS ARE VERY SHARP AND COULD POKE SOMEONE'S EYE OUT*). Make this origami with multiple sheets of colored paper (one color for one half and one for the other) for a cool affect.
