    Madam Rue’s Fortune Telling Machine Tutorial

    Filed under Art Projects, Bella's Corner, Design Team, Tutorials

    Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. But you can try searching on the same names (as links below) on the new site.

    I see… in your future… that you will want to make a Fortune Telling Machine after seeing the tutorial created by Laura Carson!

    Poppets, you are in for a double treat! That Laura Carson is crazy creative! Not only is there a video tutorial, but Laura has also created a companion, printable tutorial for the video!

    You would never know that the main component of Madam Rue’s Fortune Telling Machine is a Blank Altoids Tin.

    A couple of my favorite parts of the machine: the table she created from a component normally used on the outside of a shadow box, and the little fortune hanging out of the slot. No, I won’t tell you how Laura made the table or the fortune slot. You’ll just have to view the tutorial yourself!

    In honor of the Gypsy Fortune Teller Swap, all of the gypsy-themed components for Laura’s tutorial are On Sale! YAY! Here are some of those sale elements that Laura used to create her fabulous Fortune Telling Machine:
