Step 1: Precrease

Fold and unfold the top edges to create a crease. Sorry if the picture is too blurry.

Step 2: Precrease (again)

Fold and unfold the paper, but this time, fold the bottom edges. Once again, i'm sorry if the picture is too blurry. Did you see how everything repeated?

Step 3: Mini 3D Triangles

This is where it gets tricky. Pay close attention, and notice the sides sticking out. Turn them into 3d triangles by putting the lines close enough so they are 3D triangles. My camera is acting up. So sorry if it is to bright.

Step 4: Legs Out

Notice the edges on the triangles(which all triangles have). Fold them upward to create the legs. Also notice that your working on the bottom.

Step 5: Toward the Middle

Notice the two triangles on the sides. Don't worry if you mess up.

Step 6: It Is Finnaly Over!

Flip the turtle over and your done! You have you "pet" paper turtle!

    When you feel the need to say "sorry if the picture is too blurry" you know that it doesn't show what it should very well. Take the pictures again, keep taking them until you get something you're happy with and don't need to apologise for. Apart from a steady-hand, bright light such as sunshine may help you. L
