  4. Fold the paper in half and put your thumb/fingers into the pockets and open it into a fortune teller.

  6. Use a black pen to draw two nostrils on the centre corners of the top sections.
  7. Take a sheet of white card and cut out two horn shapes, then use tape or glue to attached them to the top of the fortune teller.

Top Tip

Use paper, rather than card, as it will make the origami much easier to fold.
