Step by Step Guide
If you like my funny fortunes, download the printable below… it includes a ready-to-print option and colouring-in option.
If you’d like to draw your own fortunes go straight to Step 4.
Step 1: Print the artwork onto A4 or A3 paper, there’s options for both… you can also choose between black and white or colour.
Step 2: Trim the printout into a square by cutting along the dotted lines using a pair of scissors.
Step 3: If you’ve chosen the black and white version, time to colour it in using felt pens or crayons.
Step 4: Make creases by folding the square in half (side to side) from both directions (A).
Step 5: Repeat, but by folding the square corner to corner, in both directions (B).
Step 6: Fold each corner into the centre, and crease the folds using your finger.
Step 7: This is important, TURN the paper over.
Step 8: Once again, fold the corners into the centre, and crease along the folds.
Step 9: Turn the paper over one last time.
Step 10: Tease out the flaps to form the completed Paper Fortune Teller shape.
