Template of the Week: Cootie Catcher
Posted by Corinne Gill
Kiss the Bride. Kiss the Groom. Kiss the Bartender!? Why not spread the love (and the cooties) at your reception? This fold and play game puts a grown-up twist on the school yard staple that lets everyone in on the fun. Simply download, print, fold and let the kissing begin!
1 1. Download and print the template onto a letter-size sheet of colored paper and cut out the 8 1/2 inch square.
2. With Design facing down, fold in half diagonally, then release the fold. Next, fold in half lengthwise and crease. Rotate square for another lengthwise crease. Release folds.
2 3. With printed side down, fold one corner inward so that it touches the center crease.
3 4. Fold remaining corners in to meet at the center point.
4 5. Flip square over and fold one corner inward so that it touches the center crease.
5 6. Fold remaining corners inward so that they meet at the center.
6 8. Pinch to form a peak.
7 To play, pick a word (kiss in four languages) and spell it as you move the flaps in and out and side to side in time with the letters. Then, pick a number from the ones showing and move the flaps as you count. Finally, pick a number and open the fortune-teller to reveal whom you should kiss and pucker up!
