  1. Hello my name is Imogen and I love your origami ( I especially like the animals) I tried the turtle and I noticed that in step 5 I noticed something that didn’t make sense: “bottle” left did u maybe mean bottom?

    yours sincerely Imogen

  2. You aren’t supposed to cut anything in origami. It’s the art of paper folding, not cutting. Good model tho. I made mine out of newspaper.

    1. Yes this is generally true however there are some traditional Japanese origami models that do include some cutting (such as this turtle). The idea that you cannot use any cuts or glue is not a strict rule in Japanese origami, rather it’s just something that has become popular over time.

  3. i did it agin and agin is cool

    bon’t call me miley everyone calls me bob
