Follow the instructions below to make this Origami Turtle
Although this origami turtle looks pretty complete and awesome, it’s surprisingly somewhat easy to fold. Nice looking turtles usually require complex folding techniques, and simple turtles although easier to fold, is rather plain and unsatisfying. This origami turtle strikes the perfect balance of “foldability” and asthetics.
There is one caveat however. The neck may be a tad on the tricky side, but I’m sure you’ll be able to tackle it thanks to my aweome instructions. You should be able to fold everything else pretty effortlessly.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half, then unfold.
Step 3: Fold the corners to the center crease.
Step 4: Turn the paper over.
Step 5: Fold the slants to meet at the center and allow the flaps in back to come loose.
Step 6: Fold the bottom flaps to the center as shown.
Step 7: Fold about 2/3rds of the flap back down as shown.
Step 8: Fold the “diamond” down in half.
Step 9: Fold about 3/4ths of it back up.
Step 10: Here’s the tricky fold. Begin creasing at the left corner tip and slide the crease to the center, then squash parts of the head.
Step 11: Repeat on the right side.
Step 12: Turn the figure over.
Step 13: Squeeze the sides of the tail together to create a hump on the shell. Make sure peak of the hump does not go past half way. After squeezing the tail, fold it to the side.
Step 14: Fold the tail under the body.
Step 15: Fold the corners on both sides in to give the shell a rounded appearance.
Step 16: Fold only parts of the tail back out, allowing the base to lock the shape of the shell in place while the tips protrudes out.
Step 17: Turn over.
Step 18: Fold the arms in and then fold the tip back out to the center of the shoulders’ edge.
Step 19: Fold the legs in and half of it back out to the edge.
Step 20: Turn the turtle over and stretch the arms and legs out a little so it can stand. Good job!
