Cootie Catchers

I've just came across the cutest idea... the Cootie Catcher aka Fortune Teller.


source

Remember those from say...grammar school?? I remember never knowing how to fold them but truly enjoying their yummy contents. It was ALWAYS about boys and kissing.

Well after hunting down a tutorial, I now know how to fold them:



But how to print them is an entirely different beast. I have had no luck finding a DIY for the printing part. I really don't want to shell out $100.00 bucks, the going rate, for something that will cost a small fraction of that. *sigh*

I think they would make awesome ice breakers at the cocktail hour (or so).

If anyone knows of or has a template, please share.

These are adorable! I vaguely remember how to fold them--the template to print them out looks like it could be done...maybe a little complicated but I agree, prob not worth the 100 dollars to buy them!

I randomly came across your blog - I am getting married in Sept, and I LOVE this idea! So cute! Love looking around at your posts!

Oh, this would be such a great idea! It totally would break the ice. If I were you, I would fold the Fortune Teller, and then draw roughly on it where you would want the art work / words. Then unfold it and a) try to re-create it on the computer, or b) make a adaptable one on a Gocco printer (if you have one...or can borrow one :).
