Steps To Create 3D Arrows:

Insert an Arrow shape:

The very first step is to insert a regular arrow shape to your slide. To do so: Go to the Insert tab and select Shapes. Locate Block Arrows and select the very first Right Arrow (as shown in the figure below).

Inserting Arrow

Create a Rectangle:

From the Shapes menu choose a Rectangle and adjust its dimensions. Place this rectangle over the arrow as shown in the figure.

Creating a Rectangle

Place Rectangles:

Duplicate this rectangle five times by clicking on Control + C and Control + V. Now place these rectangles over the right arrow.

 

Placing Rectangles

Align Rectangles:

Select all the five rectangles. Distribute them horizontally by clicking on Format> Align> Distribute Horizontally.

Delete the first Rectangle:

Delete the very first rectangle towards the left side as shown in the figure. Select all the other four rectangles.
