How to make a Fortune Teller for the King’s Coronation
Start with your Union Jack face down. Then follow the generic instructions:
To make your Fortune Teller, you will need a square piece of paper. We generally cut it from an A4 sheet of paper, so measures approximately 20 x 20 cm.
Begin by folding the paper across the diagnoal in both directions – so you get a cross shape (bottom left photo)
Bring each corner towards the middle/ inside and make a neat fold (picture 4 shows the first fold).
Once you have all four folds (top right) – use your thumbs to make neat creases. Flip your paper over.
You will see another “cross” running across you paper.
Again, bring each corner in and fold towards the middle (as per bottom right photo).
Once you have all for folds, fold in half (as per top right), open and fold in half again in the other direction. Just to create some creases.
Now comes the “only” tricky bit.. you need to squeeze all four sides in towards each other as per the bottom left images.
Then lift each outside flap to make your Cootie Catcher! ENJOY!!!
So if you have ever wondered how do you make an origami fortune teller, I do hope you now have your answer!
