To celebrate our book launch, we did a super fun make-and-take table right before Thanksgiving at a local indie craft fair called Crafty Supermarket. We taught about 300 kids–and maybe 100 adults–the art of folding up a proper cootie catcher.
We also sold some copies of Fold Me Up: 100 Paper Fortune-Tellers for Life’s Pressing Questions and gave out free “Should You Buy That?” cootie catchers (designed by Kelly N. Kofron). You know, for the indecisive shopper inside all of us.
Now that’s it’s officially 2014, we thought you might want a free download of that same shopping cootie catcher. You might be tempted to hit those after-after Christmas sales, but maybe you’ve also resolved to save a few pennies.
Download the free printable cootie catcher, fold it up and find out, “Should I buy that?”
But, sometimes, there comes a point in the night when you must make a crucial decision: Should I have another cocktail?
There’s a fine line between happily tipsy and being asked to leave the bar. To help you navigate these tricky waters, we present you with this paper fortune teller for guidance.
It’s a hilarious to fold up and throw on the coffee table at your party. Or to whip out at the bar when one of your friends get just a little bit obnoxious. Laughs guaranteed.
Plus, it’s wickedly illustrated by my friend Katy Fischer (one of 10 guest illustrators who appear in my paper fortune-teller book). She’s a creative director at a cool agency in St. Louis called TOKY and does all kinds of awesome stuff on the side. Also, I not-so-secretly wish she’d move closer and become my new best friend (Hi, Katy!).
Go ahead, download this paper fortune teller, print it out, fold it up and find your drinking fortune.
