"I wanted something different, that would be a great conversation starter to use on cards promoting my photography business" said Jeannie. Taking inspiration from the every day things that spark a conversation, she settled on a design replicating the fortunes found inside traditional fortune cookies.
"I came up with a few 'fortunes', some from existing fortunes that I'd saved and some I just made up. I thought it would be cool to mimic the printing of a fortune paper that you'd find in a cookie, so I made little 'registration marks' in blue on the edges."
Jeannie made 20 different fortunes in total, and continues 'I find these to be great for clients, trade shows, conventions and networking meetings. I love them!
"I place them face down in my orange MOO MiniCard holder and when I meet someone, I open the holder and let my new friends 'pick a card'. They turn it over and see their fortune!"
