Turtle - Crawford

This is Pat Crawford's Turtle from Origami 3 (1972) by Robert Harbin. This was the first Origami turtle I ever learned how to fold, and for some time it was the only turtle I knew how to fold. It's folded from a blitzed preliminary base.

This model appears on the cover of the book, but in that photo it's made from textured paper. I think because of the smooth regions of the finshed product, textured paper would have been a better choice than the paper I used. The one here was folded from a single 15cm sheet of standard Origami paper.
