...just dont hit people, okay? >_<
not a healthy obsession -_-' I'm addicted to making these now. they litter my room and school bag just because making them helps me think :P
so I noticed that there was no straight-forward how-to on making them (unless you wanted to use money)...so here's one! :D
I strongly advise if you're throwing them, that you're very careful >_< they can actually be dangerous. other than that, have fun

    start with your paper. it can be any colour and you can use standard square shaped origami paper (advised) or even normal A4.
