8 Point Star

A shuriken like modular star by Robert Neale. It’s also called octagon star or “Pinwheel-Ring-Pinwheel”. It’s easy to make and once all the modules are assembled they slide in place.

It can be either a ring or a pointy throwing star (that’s why the “Pinwheel-Ring-Pinwheel” name), but it doesn’t change shape on the fly.

Paper to use

Made with 8 square papers, I used 10cm square papers, but for its function it might be better to use smaller squares.
