Steel shurikens are expensive and in this economy, even a true ninja such as yourself needs to save money. Once a shuriken is thrown, you may never recover it. That's why I've come up with instructions on how to make an origami shuriken for the cheap ninja. It's made of paper, but it can be dangerous with its pointy corners so watch where you throw it.
The origami shuriken is definitely tossable because there is a certain heft to it. It's also not difficult to make so feel free to make as many as your ninja utility belt can carry. Paper's a lot cheaper than steel after all.
If you want your origami shuriken to look as cool as mine, you'll need two sided origami paper with different colors. However, if you're a really really cheap ninja, you can just use plain paper and borrow some crayons to add color.
|Step 1: Start with a square piece of origami paper, but if you only have regular 8.5x11 paper, follow these instructions to make a square sheet.|
|Step 2: Fold the paper in half, then unfold.|
|Step 3: Cut in half. (I like to fold in half backwards and forwards repeatedly creasing really well, and then slowly tear it in half)|
|Step 4: Fold the halves in half again so it's thinner.|
|Step 5: Fold both sheets down in half.|
|Step 6: Unfold. All we need is the halfway crease.|
|Step 7: Fold the top half to the side as shown without passing the halfway crease.
