Crafty Secrets DT Technique Challenge

Good morning!
Are you ready for another Crafty Secrets challenge?
I am, I can't wait to see what the other DT girls did!

This month we're doing technique challenges...Is folding paper a technique? Hmmmm, I think so! I promised I'd do a step by step on the fortune teller/cootie catcher. I remember playing with these so much we'd wear them out, we made them out of notebook paper though.
Here we go....

Here are a few pictures of the finished fortune teller. I used the Price Tags set to stamp the numbers, the flower from the Kitchen Classic set for the colors and several sets for the inside sentiments.
1. You need a square piece of pattern paper, the thinner the better.
I used a 6x6 piece of double sided paper here.
2. Fold the paper in half to make a triangle.
3. Fold it again to make a small triangle.
4. Open the paper up.
5. Fold 2 of the corners to the middle.
6. Fold the other 2 corners to meet in the middle
7. Turn it over.
8. and fold those corners to meet in the middle.
9. Work your fingers in the spaces underneath and you have your fortune teller.
Now it's time for your numbers, colors and sentiments. We would write our own fortunes inside back in the day, but, when you're a stamper you gotta use sentiments.

LOVE this, Pam! It is gorgeous! Gave me a big smile because we just got back from Costa Rica, where we made simple ones pre-printed with scriptures inside for our VBS craft with the local kids. They loved 'em. Yours is so elegant and lovely!
