This idea for this Christmas card harks back to a childhood game that I played with my friends at school. We folded a square of paper, several times over, to create what we called a 'fortune teller'.To play involved choosing an image and then opening and shutting the device, spelling out the word, followed by a number choice and more opening and shutting of the device, counting, until at the end, the 'fortune teller' was opened to reveal a secret message. I decided to make a larger sized game so that it could also be displayed as a 3D object - it was very hard to decide on the correct weight of paper. I also decided that the festive, secret messages and images should all be positive and bright and that it was to look modern with clean lines. I found out during my research that not everyone used the 'fortune teller' name, but that they were also known as a 'chatterbox'. That name sounded better with the word Christmas, hence it became a 'Christmas Chatterbox'. Although it had several sections to print, it was actually very suitable to produce in numbers. The very hardest part was to fold them accurately - they simply didn't work if you didn't take care.
