These are my signature craft trinket. I make these straw shrimp all the time and I give them to everyone I like. I taught them as a short lesson/presentation in class five years ago, when I first figured out how to make them and I've continued teaching them as an activity for the animal rights group I started at school Smiley



Edit: They turn out quite nicely when they're made of transparent or striped straws Smiley



I like that they only require a single drinking straw, a pair of scissors, and no glue, tape, or anything of that sort Smiley

Hehe, I'll see if I can find the tutorial I made.
I can make grasshoppers and I think a giraffe, but I can't quite remember.
Shrimp are really my favourite thing to make, because I like how the bend fits in perfectly Wink

They use exactly one straw, require only one pair of scissors, and no glue, tape or anything of that sort. Thank you!!

I like these!  They are so clever and funky.  I NEED to know how to make a couple of them, as they are so perfect for something I have to do.  Thanks for posting them!
