Cootie-Catcher Note Cards
If you added up all the hours I spent at recess playing with cootie catchers I've probably lost at least two weeks of my life to these tantalizing time traps. But had fun doing it. Come to think of it, they'd make awesome party invites for a retro party or class reunion.... "Your fortune unfolds . . . Does he like you back? Will you be a star? Do you dare to know? Everyone's favorite folded, flapping, fortune-telling device does double duty as a set of colorful and inspiring note cards. These whirly-swirly writing papers include folding instructions for transforming your note into a super-cool cootie-catcher.

This particular design has a silicone lid that securely attaches to the cup. The outside is matte and the inside is glazed. I prefer a version that Starbucks put out a few months ago. Their version is pretty much the same, but the outside is glazed (and of course has their logo) and the lid is plastic with a silicone liner to keep liquids sealed in. The key difference between the two is the price. "I Am Not A Paper Cup" is roughly $20 and the Starbucks version is $12. The upsides to either is that if you are a daily coffee drinker, you don't have to trash a paper cup and plastic lid every time you get take-out coffee. The downside is that both of them hold about 8 oz. - not favorable if you normally order a "grande" at Starbucks. Another issue for commuters is that it is not spill-proof or splash-proof. And finally, the Starbucks version CANNOT go into the microwave.
Clever, clever! Mail it and the recipient can fold it into a paper airplane and boink someone in the head. Most excellent.
