Valentine Fortune Teller by Amanda

Today I’m posting a video and fun project created by Joy’s Life Design Team member, Amanda. Do you remember making these in grade school? (Or to impress your own children who hadn’t seen them yet? LOL!) I recently saw the “fortune teller” creation used in a magazine to hold candy! You would just sit it upright like a little bowl. You could put candy hearts in it. Pretty cute and fun! Well, let’s hear what Amanda had to say:

Here’s the fortune from the top.

Here’s the opened fortune where the numbers go. 😉

Awww, a Joy’s Life Lots of Pun stamp was under the number. (Now lets open them all and pick the fortune we like best. LOL! Don’t tell Amanda.) 🙂

Thank you Amanda!  That was FUN!
