How To Make a Fortune Teller
Fortune tellers can be great fun and a great source of entertainment. They can also be used to tell someone’s future, provide advice, or just help pass the time. Whether you’re new to making fortune tellers or you’re experienced, anyone can make a fortune teller with a few simple supplies!
This step-by-step guide will show you how to make a fortune teller, so you can make your own unique and fun fortune teller to use or give as a gift.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Before you start making your fortune teller, you’ll need to gather some supplies. You’ll need:
- A piece of paper (any color or size)
- Pen or pencil
- Markers or crayons (optional)
- Colored paper or construction paper (optional)
Once you have all your supplies, you’re ready to start making your fortune teller!
Step 2: Prepare the Paper
Take your piece of paper and fold it in half. Then, unfold it and fold it in half the other way. You should now have an “X” shape. Then, unfold it again and fold it in half the third time. This will give you an “X” shape with four sections.
Step 3: Cut and Fold the Sections
Take your scissors and cut along the middle of the “X” shape. Be sure to cut all the way to the corner of each section. Once you’ve cut the sections, fold them in half to make triangles. You should now have four triangles.
Step 4: Create the Fortune Teller
Take your pen or pencil and draw a letter and a number in each triangle. For example, you can draw an “A,” “B,” “C,” and a “D” in the top four triangles. And in the bottom four triangles, you can draw a “1,” “2,” “3,” and a “4.”
Step 5: Add the Fortune Teller Labels
On each triangle, write a label of what your fortune teller will tell. For example, you could write “Love,” “Luck,” “Health,” and “Wealth.” You can also use other labels such as “Yes/No,” “Future,” or “Advice.” Use your imagination and have fun with it!
Step 6: Add Color (Optional)
If you want to add some color to your fortune teller, you can use markers or crayons to color in each triangle. You can also use colored paper or construction paper to make the colors of your fortune teller stand out more. This is optional, and you can always skip this step if you prefer.
Step 7: Add the Fortune Teller Messages
This is the final step in making your fortune teller. Take your pen or pencil and write down the message your fortune teller will give out in each triangle. For example, in the “Love” triangle you could write a message like “You will find true love soon.” Or for “Luck” you could write “You will have a lucky streak soon.”
Step 8: Enjoy Your Fortune Teller!
Now that you’ve made your fortune teller, you can start using it and having fun. Fortune tellers are great for parties, gatherings, or just for playing around with friends. You can also give your fortune teller away as a gift or use it as a decoration in your room.
