Papercraft Green Sea Turtle

Green sea turtles live in oceans around the entire globe. The turtle's name is derived from the green fat that is found beneath their shells. This papercraft green sea turtle was created by DeviantART member DrWheelieMobile and is based on a 3D model from the Zoo Tycoon video game. A printable template for the turtle model may be downloaded here. As green sea turtles' coloring varies, there are four different versions of the template included in the download. Green sea turtles are protected by law in most countries of the world.

Printable Origami Dragon

Here's a novel idea: instead of buying pre-printed patterned origami paper, how about printing paper with a pattern of your own design. That is exactly what Jacque Davis did with this print and fold origami dragon. A copy of her template may be found on Jacque's Flickr page. I really like what she did with the colors and geometric designs!
