These are just a few thoughts I want to share from my first look at a recently purchased Fortune Donut.

I am impressed and relieved by the method. It does NOT use color changing ink, bits of colored celophane or Chinese import electronics. This is something that could have been made back when color printing became affordable.

There is more than just cardboard rings. There is a nicely made pair of steel scissors having plastic dipped handles and "TENYO" stamped in the metal. Collectors _need_ these.

It requires some effort, but it is possible to make rings of symbols, words or colored spots drawn by hand. Instead of revealing a different color on the back, one could make it to force a word or number.

And if a person wished to make them with a razor blade knife instead of a circle cutter, the shape could be a rectangular or triangular frame rather than a donut.

I am posting here because I thought this effect deserved more discussion. The link to the Tenyo 2008 thread is

I also like the method to this. It was not what I was expecting.
I have not really had a chance to perform this though. Do you think that the cardboard ring can be handed out for examination at the end? Personally, I would be worried that spectators would find something if examined for too long. Perhaps a quick examination would be OK though. Has anyone tried it?

You can visit Tenyo offical site and contact them for English instructions. Just send them your photo of your products and they would be happy to send you one.

Sugawara's improved method, which he still sells, is much better. No extra piece.
