I love your sweet cootie catcher. It brings back memories from grade school.
hee hee...yes, i remember making those...you are too cute Elyse!!!
About 2 months ago..we had this discussion on facebook..between old high school friends..One of the girls had saved a ton of those from school and dug them out of her attic..they were quite hilarious!!Thanks for sharing.Cindy from Rick-Rack and Gingham
I remember these. How much fun are they.Have a great week!Melinda
How adorable! Thanks for making a cootie catcher just for us, Elyse! I want to make one, now! I know what you mean...when there's too much to do (you should see my work table right now...!)you just have to play for a little bit! Well doneHope you're having a wonderful Sunday!
oooo, those were sooooo fun!!!! thanks for memories
Super cute! You are very crafty! Have fun with your fortunes!Hugs,Lisa
I love your fortune teller, Elyse!
It looks like you're having too much fun today!I made cootie catchers all the time as a girl....of course, they were never THAT pretty! teehee
So, so cute! Very fun!
Yes I do remember making them. I loved them as a kid. I think they would be a fun thing to have at a tea party or luncheon as a converstation starter. Maybe make them into questions that everyone can answer.Hugs,Joanne
OH yes I remember making many of these in school, lol. Thanks for the reminder ♥
O yeh ! i remember !!Nice done ! thanks for share.........hugs from Ria
Yes I did make these and we did call them cootie catchers:) You can even make those beautiful, Elyse! Have a blessed day my friend!
Oh how fun! I was hoping I'd get the one that said "Mike likes you!" ♥
These are so brilliant!!! How sweet the sentiments and the pretty paper are and, now, I'm all happy! and, btw, once a month, we have a cootie catcher making frenzy around here. Except, with young boys, the fortunes are truly ridiculous!Love, katy x
Boy-I haven't thought about fortune tellers for 100 years. Yous is cuter than cute Elyse! I love Joanne's suggestion about using them as conversation starters.Hope you get everythting accomplished that you want to this week.xoxoJoyce
Oh my gosh! Those are a blast from the past. Yours is just adorable.
Adorable. I remember these - we called them something like fortune tellers! They always involved boys - secret crushes!xoClaudia
You are just too cute. I love this! Brings back a lot of memories!
Cute! I used to make these all the time when I was a girl, and my daughter did too
So sweet! I do remember playing with these. LOVE your paper choices, Elyse! :)
OH wow I remember those.. so much fun we had playing with them... I don't remember how to fold them any more,,,, so thanks for the how too.. Love the pretty paper. Have a great week. Hugs;Alaura
I so remember making these. I love them, thanks for bringing back all the memories.
OMG! Billy like you!!! Hee hee! :]This is too funny! I wanted to make one from a book page but I am a "foldtard"!m ^..^
Much nicer then the ones made out of loose leaf paper.
Okay Elyse you are just too cute you crack me up! My ten year old is totally into those with her friends right now. Ahhhhh the memories. Have a great day.
he he he!! I remember these!! I don't remember what we called them though... The next time you're having play time, you should create a pretty MASH board!! :)
I love these sweet ones...I make them all the time..my students love them...ours never look as adorable as yours. xoxoxox
I never did one as a kid, and remember when I was really small, that I thought they really told fortunes. I guess I never figured out how to make one when I was bigger so I didn't spoil the magic.
Oh Elyse, you just brought back some fun memories as a little girl! Mine would say things like:who will you marry? (boys names included)where will you live?how many children will you have?what kind of house will you live in?...ah memories! I think these little cootie catcher/fortune teller will be around for a long time! Yours is the sweetest one I have ever seen!Love,Maryjanexox
So darned cute and I love the paper you used Elyse! Oh the memories this brings back. By the time we passed it back and forth and wrote and rewrote, the words were barely legible. That was our way of texting way back then. haxo
Elyse,Thank you for your sweet comments and sending all those lovely ladies my way. I am so honored to meet you all.Warmly,Bethany
What a cute idea!! I remember making these as a girl and putting different boys names in as who like you!I went over to Bethany's sweet blog- you are right such a pretty blog!bee blessedmary

You have such a pretty Blog, I remember making those at school, although they were not as pretty as yours! Catherine x
hi my dear! thank you for letting me know about Bethany!! Such a darling blog!How Cute! i would make these all the time when i was young :)thanks for taking me back down on memory lane!! Love ya!

aww thank my love! yes i made it :) would you like me to send you the original image?? if you want you could use the one on my page or i could make you a couple of buttons for you to choose from.. just let me know whatever works for you!
Elyse, I've made countless cootie catchers. I can't remember any other names at the moment, but with each generation of cousins, babysitting, nieces, etc. I've passed on the tradition. What fun to see it all floofed up with pretty paper and print! Maybe I need to make some more.Have fun! Sherry
I Love it! And, yes, remember them well!
So sweet, you brought back some FUN memories!Best wishes,Tammy
Oh sweet!!I remember making these in primary school!
I remember those. Love your pretty paper. Why don't I find paper like that?My daughter and I are relatively new to blogging and would love to have you stop by. So far, we are having a blast. Kat surprised me with the blog one day. She had it all set up for us. Here is our address:http://katsuijewelry.blogspot.comWe really aren't all about jewelry and the name of our blog is Katsui! That's what we had to settle for :-(Suz
lol this is so cute, and yes I do remember these in school. lol too cute.
These are too SWEET Elyse!! I remember them from my childhood days too , but haven't a clue how to make one now. Yours is sooooo pretty! Who would have thought at 51years of age that these little details would still bring me much joy!!Hugs~
