Now you must colour in these four flaps different colours.
On the  inside write 8 different numbers on the sections (usually the numbers 1-8).
Finally flip over the flaps and beneath the numbers write different fortunes (some good and some bad) then that's it.
To use it put your thumb and first finger from each hand in different protruding flaps and pinch it together.
Now have someone choose a colour. Open it in one orientation then shut it and open it in the other orientation and repeat. do this while spelling out the letters in the chosen colour.

when you run out of letters hold the fortune teller in the orientation that it landed so that different numbers are displayed.

Then do the same with a selected number.

Finally peel back the flap of another selected number and read the fortune.
