For Fortune Teller origami, you fold a square piece of paper in half and in half again, making 4 little squares. Opening the piece of paper and using the 4 little squares as a guide, you make a smaller square (or a diamond) by bringing each of the four corner to the middle. Then you turn it over (to the flat side)and bring each corner into the middle again, making a smaller square. When you turn it over, you should see 4 square flaps. Fold in half, square flaps out. Slip your thumb and index fingers under the 4 square flaps, push together like a fortune cookie and voila! foturne telling game. On the inside where the triangles are, write numbers on each half of triangle. Open triangles and write fortunes inside. Kinda hard to describe. Would be easier to show you but if you get a piece of paper and follow along, you ought ot be able to get the idea. I think there used to be a rhyme that went along with the fortune telling game but I don’t remember that now.
