Hey, I got the video to work on my Mac! Just make sure you download it to your HD I think... that's where mine is anyway. (Also, for the record, I use Firefox, if that makes a difference. And even if it doesn't, you should be using Firefox anyway.)

Hah, that could be exactly what my issue was. I've just been costing off "Safari" since I got rid of my PC. And Safari's not so friendly about things.

EDIT: Hmmm. Neither Firefox nor your suggestion helped the video work. It looks like the video's simply broken to me, but if  people are still using it that can't be the case.

I made mine from the video posted earlier... Although I didn't get nearly half the bends in the body that the video did so I'm wondering if my straw is shorter or thinner... it's still cute...

these shrimp are so incredibly cute, and I want to make one for everyone I know!

Sigh... but I'm having so much trouble with the body!  I can't quite see what you're supposed to do, in the video -- could anyone whose having success pretty please post some pictures of the process? Or a mspaint sketch?  I'm not sure how you do the first real folds...

I got confused at that part too. I could try to make you a mspaint sketch or take some pictures when I get home from work if you can wait. (I get off at 5 and it will take about 20min to get home after that.)
If you can pause the video or slow it down on your player that's what I did. and it helped a lot!

Are they pretty sturdy once they are made?  Something that could be handled without falling apart?

So long as you crease your folds they're fine. The first one I made better than the second because I creased really well and I rushed the second. So the second one was starting to come loose. But even at that he still looks pretty good and can't come "unknotted" as that is essentially waht you are doing is knotting the straw around itself. Smiley
