Origami Cornucopias

(these are also called "cootie catchers" and "fortune tellers")


  • Origami paper (or thin foldable paper like notebook paper)
  • Markers, crayons
  • Small candies or finger treats like grapes or raisins (or non-candy items like marbles or stones)
  • Stickers


  1. Start with a square of paper
    • If the paper isn't square, create a square by folding one corner over to the opposite edge of the paper, and align the two edges. Crease. Cut off the remaining edge of the paper that is not contained under the fold.
  2. Fold the paper diagonally from one corner to another, matching edges, and crease carefully. Open the paper.
  3. Choose the next corner to the right, and fold the paper again to the opposite diagonal corner, matching all edges, and crease. Open the paper.
  4. Fold the paper in half horizontally, matching edges, and crease, then open.
  5. Fold the paper in half vertically, matching edges, and crease, then open.
  6. The paper will have four lines, two going corner to corner, and two going down the middle from top to bottom, and side to side.
  7. Take one corner, and fold it just to the middle point (the "belly button") of the all the folds, and crease. Do the same with the other three corners.
  8. Flip the folded paper over.
  9. Take one of these corners, and fold just to the middle point, and crease (it might be a little harder to crease so go slowly). Do the same with the other three corners.
  10. This side of the paper has many folded shapes, the other has four flaps. Keep this new square shape with the "many folds" side up and the flaps side down.
  11. Fold this shape in half horizontally, then unfold.
  12. Fold it in half vertically, and keep it this way.
  13. Pick up the shape, and wiggle fingers into the flaps to pull them away from the "body." The shape will start to open on all its folds, and eventually it can be flipped over onto the fold points. 
  14. The flaps open up to reveal the cornucopia "pockets" for holding goodies!
