Fortune favors the crafty!

As promised, here's a tutorial for the paper fortune teller. 

1. You'll need to start with a square. I used an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.
Start in one corner and fold the bottom edge up so it meets the side. 

 2. Remove the extra paper. 

3. You'll be left with a triangle. 

4. Which you'll fold in half again, corner to corner. 

5. Make sure your folds have a good crease, and then unfold your square. 

6. Take one corner and fold it up to the center. 

7. Do the same for the other three corners, so they all meet in the middle. 

8. You'll be left with this. 

9. Flip it over. 

10. Fold the corners up to the middle again. 

11. Yup, all of them.

 12. You'll be left with this. 

13. Fold your square in half. 

14. Make sure your creases are nice and sharp. 

15. Now you can start popping open your fortune teller. 

16. Take a moment to admire your handiwork. 

16. Now it's time to decorate! What does fortune have in store for you? That is all up to you, my dearies. 

Here's a little video to show you how to use your new fortune teller. 

It's so hard to film yourself with a little point and shoot balanced on top of shoeboxes,
but it all worked out somehow. And audio! Who knew there'd be audio.

  1. Remembering these but forgetting how they worked...ask question? What did the colors and numbers mean again? Love the tutorial. Thanks for warm reminders.
