Alright, back to the task at hand – today’s craft post. This week your project is to color your own mandala turtle. I don’t know about you, but I love turtles. They’re so cute!
There are a few supplies you will need:
First, print off your template (if you have cardstock paper available, this would work great for this project. If not, no biggie, regular printer paper like I used works just fine!) Each template makes ONE completed turtle.
You can pick up your free template here:
=====> Turtle Mandala Template
If you want a whole bunch of these cute turtles, print this template as many times as you wish!
All printed? Great! Now it’s time to COLOR! I used glitter gel pens and metallic markers for mine, but you can use anything you’d like. Colored pencils, ultra fine point Sharpies, go for it – whatever makes your heart happy 🙂
Once colored, cut out the turtle.
Next, cut along the solid line like shown in the image below. It’s easier to see the line in the non-colored template… don’t worry, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about because by this step, you’ve already printed and colored the blank template, having seen the dotted and solid black line on the template 😉
Once you’ve cut along the solid line, fold that piece over to the dotted line. It should look like this now:
Flip the turtle over and pull the pieces together so it looks like this:
Once you’ve completed the above step, you need to tape the turtle so he doesn’t fall apart. Place a piece of clear tap on the fold. It’ll look like this:
And there you have it! Fun mandala turtles for all!
