Simple Model of the week – Shuriken (throwing star)

There are thousands of modular origami stars, but many people start folding them with this easy model. The finished model is really strong so you can throw it,  but remember to play safely – those points are sharper than you might think!

Diagrams can be found in the simple models section of the website.

Folding tips: Make each unit from start to finish, and look carefully at the diagrams, each one is slightly different. Use a thin paper to get a neat star – a 15cm square is ideal.
