Origami Turtle Instructions and Diagram

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.
