Do you remember making chatterbox/fortune tellers as a child? They were so much fun.
Last year I made this project for 'Little Angel' magazine. It was a huge hit. Both my girls have always enjoyed making these. They are fun and easy to make.
Heidi Grace Design papers and embellishments are perfect for making bright, fun chatterbox's.
Get the kids busy making them this school holidays. You can use any combination of papers and tools to create the chatterbox you have at home. Have fun.
Email a pic of your child's chatterbox [email protected] and we will share on them on the blog. I will randomly draw a winner in a few weeks and send a little something to your child in the mail.

Instructions On Making Your Chatterbox
1. Trim the white strip off the Heidi Grace Designs, patterned paper so that the paper measures 12 x 12 inch (you can use any size paper as long as it’s a square).
2. Fold your piece of paper in half twice. This will make it into a small square. Unfold.
3. Lay your paper so that the pattern is facing down and fold each of the four corners into the centre so that they touch but making sure they don’t overlap.
4. Turn your chatterbox over. Fold each of the four corners into the centre again. Again make sure they don’t overlap.
5. Fold your chatterbox in half vertically and open it back up again. Fold your chatterbox in half horizontally and open it back up again.
6. Turn your chatterbox over and place your fingers and your thumbs into each of the pockets. Your chatterbox is ready to decorate.
How To Decorate Your Chatterbox
1. Punch out two pink circles and two blue circles from the Heidi Grace Designs patterned paper, using the Fiskars Extra Large Circle Squeeze Punch. Add a rubon and a small number sticker to each of the four circles. Adhere the four circles to the front squares of your chatterbox.
2. Open your chatterbox up and stick eight Heidi Grace Designs, number punchboard stickers to each section of your chatterbox. Paint them in Kindy Glitz. Allow to dry.
3. Punch four blue and four pink circles out of the Heidi Grace Designs, patterned paper using the Fiskars large squeeze punch. Write a fortune on each circle and doodle a line around the outside in black pen. Adhere to each section on the inside of your chatterbox.
4. Your chatterbox is now finished to play with.
