Hi, my name is Ana. I'm an art student and origami expert. Today, I'm going to show you how to make an origami throwing star. So, for this project, you will need a square piece of paper. I usually recommend to have color on both sides. Okay, for this project we're going to use two papers, two squares, same size. We're going to start by folding it in half. We're going to do the same thing with both of the papers. So, and we're going to fold in half again and close it. We're going to do the same with this other paper. Open it and fold each side in half and close it. Okay. Now, we want to do is bring each of these corners here to create a triangle and do the same here in the opposite direction. Very well. Now, we're going to do the same here, we want to make sure they're facing in the opposite way as the previous one, like this. That way, this is going to go like this. Okay. Now, we're going to bring this up and fold it so that we create a triangle; same thing with this towards the other side. You want to turn the paper so that you see that both edges are meeting. Re-crease your folds. Perfect. Now, let's just bring these triangles like this; this is going to help us lock the two pieces together. Okay. Now, we're going to bring this inside this pocket. Okay. So, you put it from the flat side, not the one with the, with the folds and this one like this. Tuck it inside; same thing here, just leave that flat, put it inside and close. Now, turn; we're going to do the same thing here. Alright, that's how you fold a Ninja star. Thank you for your time; see you next time.
