How to Make

  1. To create the monster fortune teller, take a sheet of A4 red card and cut the end off to make it a square.
  2. Fold the square in half diagonally, then open it and fold it in half the other way. Then fold each corner into the centre point.
  3. Turn the card over, then fold each corner into the centre point again.
  4. Fold it in half to make a rectangle, then put a finger/thumb in each of the pockets and open it into a fortune teller.
  5. Use a white deco pen to draw three small circles onto the upper two sections of the fortune teller. Then, once that ink has dried, draw a small black circle into each of the white circles to make the monster's eyes.
  6. Cut out two arm and two leg shapes from a sheet of yellow card, and use double sided tape to stick them to the fortune teller.
  7. Use the same technique to create the spider, with purple card and black legs, and the pumpkin, with orange card and a green stalk.
