  4. Nice and slow until you get to the really tricky folds and then you go too fast!!! Slow down the tricky bits please

  5. what brand/type of paper are you using? i find that the paper im using is too thin, and when i come to fold the dinosaur's head the paper loses it's rigidity and becomes too soft to fold.
