How to Make Naruto Weapons Out of Paper
Paper ninja weapons look cool and are safe for children. (My Ninja image by Rodhas from Fotolia.com)

The anime series "Naruto" features a main character by the same name. Naruto is a ninja in training with mystical powers and certain trademark weapons. He's often pictured clutching a Japanese kunai knife in his teeth and uses ninja stars to fend off attackers.

Whether you're dressing for Halloween, readying for Cosplay or just want to be cool like Naruto, you'll need your own weapons. Creating your own kunai knife and ninja star will provide just the props you need.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Spread some glue over the top of a thick paper plate. Press a second paper plate on top of it and let the two dry for about 2 hours. Cut out the centre of the glued plates -- the flat part where you would normally place food.

  2. 2

    Place a ruler horizontally across the centre of the paper circle and draw a horizontal line bisecting it. Repeat vertically. Turn the circle so that the lines form an X. Bisect the X with two more lines so that the circle is divided into eight equal parts.

  3. 3

    Place the ruler diagonally between the tip of a vertical line and the base of the line to its left. Draw a marker line here. Repeat on the right side of the line to create a throwing star point. Turn the circle 90 degrees and draw three more points like the first.

  4. 4

    Cut along the diagonal lines with a pair of scissors. Cut slowly; scissors will slice through the thick paper, but you must be patient or you'll cut yourself.

  5. 5

    Spray paint your new throwing star front and back with black spray paint. Let the star dry for about 2 hours between coats.

  1. 1

    Spread some glue over the top of a thick paper plate. Press a second paper plate on top of it and let the two dry for about 2 hours. Cut out the centre of the glued plates -- the flat part where you would normally place food.

  2. 2

    Lay the paper circle flat on your work surface. Place a ruler vertically over the centre of the circle and draw a line bisecting the circle in half. Turn the circle 90 degrees and repeat so that you have a plus sign dividing the circle into four equal quarters.

  3. 3

    Measure the horizontal arms of the plus sign. Draw a line vertically through the centre of each line.

    Place the ruler diagonally between the left horizontal line mark and the tip of the top vertical line. Draw a diagonal line. Repeat on the right side of the circle, creating the top kunai knife point. Create a second point on the bottom of the circle this way.

  4. 4

    Cut along the diagonal marker lines with scissors. Work slowly to avoid injury. Once finished, cut off the last ¼ inch of the bottom point of your kunai blade.

  5. 5

    Cut a ½ inch deep notch into one end of the dowel rod with the cutting wheel on the high-speed rotary tool. Smear the inside of the notch with superglue and slip the flat end of the kunai blade into the notch. Let it dry overnight.

    Spray paint the entire kunai knife black. Let the paint cure for 2 hours between coats and overnight after the final coat.
