Go on, pick a colour…
Now, pick a number…
Here’s your fortune…
No. 1: You will be attacked by a robot with a human brain.
No. 2: You will get grunged by the ‘poo’ machine.
No. 3: You will be forced to wear a smelly sock balaclava.
No. 4: Your bedroom will be moved into the basement.
No. 5: You will be eaten by a shark… slowly.
No. 6: You will be abducted by an alien (while you’re sleeping).
No. 7: You will get a fright from the toilet monster.
No. 8: You will have to eat ‘snot’ toast for breakfast.
So here’s my version of the classic ‘origami’ fortune teller (apparently also known as an cootie catcher). It’s the same as the ones I used to make as a kid, except instead of boring written predictions, I’ve illustrated them (in a schoolboy humour sort of way) which makes it a funny paper fortune teller, rather an unfunny paper fortune teller!
How to make your own funny paper fortune teller
To make your own fortune teller, just print out the artwork (download link below) and then follow these super-simple folding instructions. I’ve also made colour and black and white versions available, so you can colour them in yourself!
1) Colour artwork – just start folding
2) Black and white artwork – colour them in first
3) Collectable instructions – stick them on the fridge
