These Simple Paper Turtles can be used in many different ways. Stick them on a paper clip and make a bookmark. Attach a magnet and they will be fridge magnets. Make a brooch, pencil topper or whatever you set your mind too.

We were watching a turtle documentary today and we were so amazed to see baby turtles fighting their way to the ocean.
They brought us so much joy and we decided to make a turtle project.
We really love turtles.

They come in different sizes and they date back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Amazing creatures aren’t they?

So lets make a couple.
