Fortunate in Love

I had fun making about 20 of these little fortune "cookies"! Hannah took one to school in a Chinese take out box full of Skittles. Inside the fortune "cookie" was a slip of paper asking her friend K. to go to Sadie Hawkins with her. Too cute! Can't wait to hear what he said.

I made smaller versions of the Chinese take out idea for some special valentines. The boxes are filled with Hershey's Kisses and topped with a "cookie". The messages inside are about friendship. I then closed the box up and slipped some fancy chopsticks through the top. Finished with a cute ribbon.

Fortune "Cookie" recipe: 
3.5 inch diameter circles cut from thin foam sheets with fancy edge scissors. Fold into a taco shape. Push the center of half circle in so ends come together. Hot glue the sides and pinch with a clothespin. Cut strips of paper with sayings and slip into the "cookies". 


  1. Update - Hannah has a date to Sadie's!

  2. These are so cute!!! I need to try and make some...super cute. TFS
