so excited about turtle tut!  And thanks for responding to my question even if you didn't have an answer, lol.  It was a nice consideration.  Most people just wouldn't have said anything.

I found that one also when I was searching, but I couldn't make head or tails of it!  They put the steps in a different order then how I fold them, and I've found that if you do some more prefolding, then the turtle turns out alot better. Smiley

i'm curious. how big is your biggest star?  Wink

I have no clue!  Tongue The paper I used to make it was about 2 cm wide I think, and about 15 cm long?Huh  I made it a long time ago and never bothered to measure it!

I made a decent looking turtle but I much prefer your leg style and i can see how precreasing would help a lot.  Mine was a bit squashed looking x.x

oh geez.
i guess i was way too excited. that's how big i usaually make all my stars. i can't get the thin strips to work.
i was picturing a star (get ready, this is funny) like as big as your head. or, well, my head because it's probably bigger. haha.

p.s. i think the pastel colors of the little stars make them more edible-looking. eh?

I love the idea of giving away minature creations in one of the small glass bottles like you have your turtles and such in....

How big are the bottles with the cranes and stuff... i guess to fit in the smaller ones the cranes would have to be really really tiny....

but they are great!  love the turtles!!

I just got my camera back from my brother (he's in the Air Cadets and borrowed it for his March Break Cadet trip) so I hope to have it done by Friday at the latest!
