Easy Origami Ninja Star Tutorial

Easy Origami Ninja Star

Learn to make an origami ninja star. These easy origami stars are folded from two pieces of paper. Also called a Shuriken or 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.   I also have a photo tutorial for this model here.
