Hello, friends! I hope that the first day of November is treating you well so far. And, if you celebrated Halloween yesterday, then I hope it was fun for you. Speaking of fun, today I'm going to show you a project that I made just for fun. Not for any challenge. Not for any design team work. Just because I wanted to. :)
So, you may ask, what are these things? Do you recognize them? Perhaps you played with them as a child?
They are paper fortune tellers. I made a whole bunch of them for a Halloween party that my son had over the weekend. Actually, the ones that you see in this post are just the leftovers. I made extras, so that the kids could have a variety of styles and colors from which to choose.
The 6x6" Crate Paper "Pretty Party" pad worked a treat for this project. The papers are printed on one side but plain white on the other (so that the kids can write in the fortunes), and there is a good mix of "boyish" and "girlish" patterns. These fortune tellers are quick to make, plus they are lots of fun. Want to make your own fortune teller? A simple search will show that instructions and examples abound on the web; there is even a Wikipedia article!
It's always nice to make a "just for fun" project. I hope that the upcoming weekend will bring some fun, creative time for you. Have a good one!
