This is a step by step tutorial which explains how to fold an origami star with two pieces of paper. This is a 3-D star which is also popularly known as the Ninja star.
How To fold Origami Ninja Star:
Take two pieces of paper, preferably in two different colors.
Fold the pieces of paper in vertical halves making a crease.
Unfold the paper.
Make two fold from both sides of the paper inwards to make a cupboard fold.

Now fold this in two halves horizontally. Make a crease.
Start from the top and fold the paper inward to form a triangle. Repeat the step for the bottom also. You will get the folds like this:
Repeat this step for the other piece as well in the other direction.
We now have the base folds for our star ready.
Starting from the top triangle fold it forward in line with the horizontal crease at the middle.
Repeat this for the bottom triangle. We have this shape.
Repeat steps 11 and 12 for the green color paper.
Take the pink paper folds, flip it and place it vertically as shown.
Place the green paper on top of the pink paper.
Fold the top triangle of the pink paper from its top right corner and insert this tip inside the green paper as indicated by the arrows above. Repeat this for the bottom part of the pink paper.
Flip this and repeat steps 15 and 16 for the green paper.
Flip and you have your Ninja Star.
