Oh gee. I see all of my public school students are origami stars! Those fortune tellers litter the school some days! They can't add but they sure can fold!

In answer to amazing grace, yes children still do make fortune tellers :-)

Suzi-k said...

oooh that takes me back, sometime in the dark ages we used to make those too! I admire you so much with the studying, I don't think people with young, un-rusty brain cells appreciate how much harder it gets as we get older!

Well, Miss Ruth, those are all GREAT examples of paper! Now, you told me your TP was "dull", but I have never seen TP with "decorative" embossing before! Am I deprived? hehehe

Goodness, I forgot about those little paper "fortune tellers"...I remember as kids, we used to play with those things all the time. How funny!!

Happy weekend, dear friend!!!!

Dorid said...

My kids still make those fortune tellers. I expect my grandbabies will some day too :)

I don't know sometimes if people stop to think how much of our lives and our joys are related to paper!

That fortune teller as took me back over 40 years to when we played that in the school yard at dinner times.. We also made papper chains at Christmas too, I bet you did also.
