Enjoy This Video? Check out my Whole Series HERE:

In this latest addition to my origami series, I will show you how to make a paper boomerang (Origami) by Anita Barbour* that really flies back!! To check out my throws, go to 1:02 (click here) in the video. I even show how you can throw TWO of them at the SAME TIME!!! :-)

Have you made TWO of these?!! Then do the Super Boomerang NOW!!

FAQ: This isn't a real boomerang, it's just a frisbee that you're throwing in such a way that it glides on air and comes back to you/ How does this work exactly?
A: You're somewhat right, this is not a WOODEN boomerang that has what is called an "air foil" design similar to an airplane to cause lift and/or drag, etc. However, this design has 2 Leading Edges (which slice the air) and 2 Pockets (which catch the air), and as it rotates, it uses your throwing force to spin and lift but eventually slows down. Once at a height, it uses gravity to come back and slice the air. For any aeronautical engineers out there that can explain it better, please feel free to e-mail me lol :-) Thanks!

In this tutorial, I will explain how to turn a regular sheet of printer paper into an origami boomerang... well actually 2 origami boomerangs!! :-) You will need a simple Letter Sized sheet (8.5 x 11 inches) or an A4 size paper. No tape or anything else is required.

I also explain at the end the way we must position the boomerang in order to throw it properly. If it falls to the ground check to see if:
1) It's upside down, refer to 12:40 for the proper way to position it before throwing--it does matter.
2) You may be angling it too far down, which can cause it to not come back all the way--try angling it upwards at an angle.
3) It's made the correct way and looks just like mine. It takes a bit of practice, and make sure to spin it really fast. Check my "Super Boomerang" Video (Link above) for another demonstration of how it's thrown.

This will keep you busy for hours and is fun for all ages. Once you show off your boomerang to friends, they are definitely going to want one! Please refer them to this video if you enjoy! :-)

Hope that everyone had a great break and got to spend time with the family :-) It has been a great year!
