Oh my goodness. Who knew that what looked like fairly simple paper folding could go so horribly wrong? I did a test run of the turtle earrings that I thought I would like to make.
I don't think that they are going to be happening. I can't figure out where I went wrong. I am going to try to see if I can find different directions that explain the steps another way because clearly I did not understand the ones I had. I give myself an 'A' for the effort though! I'm going to keep trying. If I get it at this size, I think I want earrings to be almost half this size. You'll know if I am ever successful!
I have misplaced my trusty penny for size reference, but if you imagine that the shell is a square, it is about one square inch.
