If you grew up in the US (and maybe they were popular elsewhere too), you probably remember the folded paper contraption called a Cootie Catcher. Essentially they are silly fortune tellers, and they are incredibly fun to make and play with. Last year Michelle Taute published the book Fold Me Up: 100 Paper Fortune-Tellers for Life’s Pressing Questions, a cootie catcher book for adults. She asked artists from around the world to create unique cootie catchers, and today in honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re offering a free download of the cootie catcher that I designed for her book (which is all about love, FTW). The download PDF looks like this (below, except larger), and includes the design and directions for assembling it.
Enjoy and happy Thursday!
