{diy} {Valentine’s 3 of 7} Paper Fortune Cookies

Welcome to the 3rd {diy} of 7!  Today I will show you just how easy it is to make paper fortune cookies.  Here’s what you’ll need:

• Paper (the thinner the better…card-stock is tricky)
• Something round to trace (any size)
• Glue Gun or Glue Dots
• Paper to write little love fortunes on
• Candy as filler

Here’s what you do:

1. trace and cut out your circles.

2. Then you bend/fold the circle in half – but don’t crease it.  Keep a smooth bend.

3. Then you hold both ends between you thumb and middle finger and pinch.  I sometimes use my index finger to press in the middle to help the pinch go easier.  The paper will naturally fold as it should.

4. Then fill them with sweet love notes and chocolates!  To secure closed, I prefer to use a drop of hot glue (hold for a minute or two to dry) or you can use stronger glue dots.  Once you have folded and pinched the fortune cookie, you will see areas where the paper touches – that’s where you want the glue to secure it.

Voila!  There you have it, simple and fun Valentine’s Fortune Cookies.  These are perfect little treats to sneak in your Loves lunch or briefcase!  I’ll see you tomorrow! ♥RobbieLee

    Really cute! I love fortune cookies and these are just adorable<3
    I've made some felt ones in the past, perhaps time for me to try that again, as well as these cute paper ones:)

    Yes! If you ladies make them, be sure to share photos. Fabric ones are so cute and I think they are a bit easier to fold and manipulate. Happy Crafting!
