I'm here today to show you how to make a paper frisbee which actually changes into something later. I'll show you. What you'll need is eight pieces of the same size small square paper. I like to use post it notes but today I also have some small little white square. Actually that is what this one was made of post it notes So what you are going to do is take your small square or any size square, fold it in a diagonal so it's a triangle and then fold it again the other way and you have an X. What you are going to do is take one of your corners and bring it, fold it up on its own self to its line to that center point like this and bring the other point in like this. We are going to fold it in half and what I like to do to help me do this is I kind of pinch right here to make sure that that is solid because what I now do is just push this or pop this in because I did that, fold it down and you have a parallelogram and what you need is eight of those and that is what I have premade. What you do now you have got kind of a flap end here and you have got an end that is all pointed together so obviously that is it's side, the pointed side solid will be what you are putting in. So taking my next piece I am going to just lay it in here, make sure it is tucked in and see how this has two little pokey ears what you are going to do is open this up a little bit with your finger, not a lot and you are going to pinch this and fold this down in, that is to secure that piece in. Then you take your next piece and do the same thing and fold it in, tuck it in so we've got three of them. You have got five more to go. Now sometimes this next end is hard for some people because you have got these two ends to be dealing with but it's not too bad. I like to tuck this in first and then I go back and kind of carefully tuck that one in so I am going to tuck these tips down here, put that back and this is the last step. It is a little tight in there but it can be done, scoot it over, tuck that in and tuck this one in. So make sure all your points and there you have a flying paper frisbee but if you have done this right there is a little loose spot in here and you can start guiding the paper in and it will give you an eight pointed star. There we go, whoop one of the things came out so you have an eight pointed star and a frisbee. Earlier I took some metallic origami paper and did the same thing. A little more decorative obviously than this so you could obviously do two different colors so you would need four of one color and four of the other and this also would just go back to a very fancy looking paper frisbee. Thanks, have a great day.
