This is another blast from the past. I haven’t made one of these since second grade! We called them Poppers, though some people call them fortune tellers, and others call them “that paper thing that you move back and forth.” For this Christmas-themed one, you get holiday messages inside, rather than the name of the boy who loves you!
If you can’t remember how to make one from your elementary school days, here’s a quick tutorial! To start, cut a square piece of paper. I used an 8″ square piece of double-sided scrapbook paper. It’s very pretty, but a little stiff.
Fold the paper in half, unfold it, and fold it again the other direction. Once you’ve done that, fold each corner into the middle, like this:
Once you’ve folded all four corners (and gotten glitter everywhere!), flip it over, and fold the corners in again. That will give you this:
Once you have all four of these corners folded into the middle, fold it in half, like this:
Once it’s folded in half, pop out the corners. Now you can find out the Christmas message in your future, or you can try to catch your little sister’s fingers in it!
To hang on the tree, put a grommet in one corner. Merry Christmas!
