Friday-gami: Diner Edition
I was out for lunch with my husband and daughter earlier today. And as we sat there I thought to myself “If my baby girl were older, how could I distract her from boredom?” Ah! The infamous fortune teller! It goes by a few different names, depending on what you are doing with it- cootie catcher, salt cellar (I think…haha), fortune teller, puppet. They are all folded the same and look the same in the end. So without further ado, let’s get to it!
You will see similarities between this and the lotus a couple weeks back. They both begin the same way!
1. Have your square in front of you.
2. I drew some lines to show where I folded here. Fold in half both ways, edge to edge.
3. Fold each corner in so they meet in the center.
4. Flip the model over.
5. Once more, fold the corners in to meet at the center.
6. When you flip the model over once more, you will see four little pockets. These are where your fingers will go.
7. When you open up the model on that side it will look like this. Here you have the salt cellar.
8. Flip it over and you can see the fortune teller/cootie catcher.
9. Put your fingers in each “slot” and you can use the fortune teller.
You could make a puppet also! In hindsight, the eyes I drew are a bit scary. Make cuter eyes than I did haha! Make one for each child and have them put on a mini puppet show for you.
Let me know if your child(ren) put on a show for you!
Until next time…
