This page is for those who want the instruction to fold a traditional origami ninja star.


This traditional origami ninja star requires two square papers. You need to make two modules which are mirror-image to each other. Two modules will be combined to form a four-pointed origami star. The interesting technique you will learn here is that the combining of two modules is accomplished through inserting two triangular flaps into pockets.


Before working on this model, you need to know what valley-fold and mountain-fold are. If you know these two folding techniques, then you will have no problem in making origami ninja star.


If you are ready, then let's get started.

You may use any kind of paper to fold the origami ninja star. It is a little easier if the front and the back side of the paper are slightly different whether it be in texture or color.

Make sure the paper that you use is a square (all sides are equal and all the angles equal 90 degrees). The paper I am using here is typical two 15cm x 15cm origami paper with different color.
