Method
Draw a circle on your piece of paper.



Add the head, legs and tail details to the outside of the circle. There should be extra space between the tail and one of the legs, which will be lost when you turn the shell into a bit of a cone.

Draw a wedge in the wide space between the tail and a back leg.

Draw some shapes onto the shell.



Colour it all in.

Cut out the turtle, including a slit along one of the lines making up the wedge.

Glue the blank wedge flap to the underside of the shell, creating a raised point in the middle of the turtle's shell.
