Hello and welcome to Drawn to DIY!
Last week, I shared some inspiring 'greenery' photos based on this year's Pantone color of the year.
Today, I'm sharing a Valentine’s Day printable / DIY.
Since February 14 is just around the corner, I thought to make a fun printable for those who are real into it this time of year — a paper fortune teller printable with some ideas for what to do.
If you'd like to write down your own activities *wink wink*, page 2 of the download has blank portions for you to fill out.
In case you don’t remember how to make a paper fortune teller, here is the breakdown:
01. Cut out the square.
02. Take one corner and fold all the way across to meet the opposite corner, forming a triangle. Open, and repeat with the other side. Open again and flip the square over.
03. Take one corner of the square and fold towards the center, forming a 90-degree angle.
04. Repeat with the other three corners.
05. Turn the paper over again and fold one corner towards the center. Repeat with the other three corners to make your square look like this:
06. Flip the paper and fold vertically in half. Open, and then fold horizontally in half.
It should be able to open up like this:
You guys probably know by now that S and I are real shy but here are our hands to show the size of the printable. The activity he ended up picking was 'stay-cation' which is awesome because we prefer to stay in pretty much any day anyway. How about you?
To play the game, insert your pointer and thumb fingers from both hands into the corner pockets and make your partner choose an icon. Spell the icon by opening the folded paper vertically and horizontally (alternately) with each letter.
Make him or her choose from the numbers displayed. Again, open vertically or horizontally according to the number he or she chose. Repeat about two more times.
Once he or she chooses the final number, unfold the corresponding flap to reveal the surprise activity you guys will do for the day.
It's a lot simpler than how I explained it but if videos work better for you, here's someone's 3-minute video from YouTube.
If you’re using page 2 of the printable (the one with the blank portions), just remember to always write towards the middle of the square.
Enjoy and happy valentine's day! :)
