How to Make a Paper Fortune Teller. Predicting your future using paper fortune tellers was a common pastime during the grade school years. Sometimes called "cootie catchers," paper fortune tellers magically told who liked you, who hated you, if you would be rich some day, and even answered questions. Take a piece of paper and make one yourself and you'll find that the fun of playing with a fortune teller doesn't diminish just because you're no longer in school.
Things You'll Need
Markers or colored pencils.
People's names, animals, or any theme can be incorporated into the fortune teller for a little variety.
