Paper Fortune Cookies

Paper LOVE Fortune Cookies

Sweet Valentines for my Hubby

 

When you are in love you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.

- Dr. Seuss


 Sweet Hello Everyone!

 

Are you feeling  love? inspired? day dreaming? kilig? Whatever your mood and thoughts about Valentines Day. I'm sure its going to be a sweet one... wink:)
Come on and join me as I welcome the month of February with full of LOVE inspired ideas. Starting off with my my Paper Fortune "LOVE" Cookies. Isn't it adorably sweet? I accidentally saw this on Pinterest the other day and I'm totally in-love with the idea of Paper Fortune Cookies very simple yet so sweet. The idea is pretty simple, simply follow the instruction below on how to make the Paper Fortune Cookies which is pretty simple. Insert your personalized love notes in the paper fortune cookies, glued them together and whoala!! DONE! That's it.. you can be as creative as you can be, by using card stock with heart design or you can just draw hearts just like what I did on mine. Talking about being frugal, I used the cleaned pasta sauce jar that I have put little string and attached a very sweet note.. So simple right? I think so too..
This is like one of my Valentines Day surprise for hubby... shhhh! I think hes gonna like this one. I have few extra  Love Fortune Cookies left and I'm thinking putting it on his lunch boxes now and then to give him a little boost of inspiration while at work.. (hahaha)
Love is in the air, I'm totally feeling it right now..(hahah) Share me your sweet Valentines plans for your hubby/loveones. I'm excited what you come up with...:)
Check out the super easy tutorial below:)
Notes/ Ideas:
- Put the LOVE paper fortune cookies on a cute Chinese take out box. 
 (If you don't have one?) NO Problem! I got a solution- I used an empty pasta sauce jar. Yup! talking about frugal, this is it. All you have to do is clean it really good and dry if off. Be creative and add some ribbons and note, just like what I did ( refer the very first picture on top)
- You can also put it on his lunch box - Little surprise and give him that boost of inspiration while at work.
- LOVE NOTES- There's a lot printable that you can find on the internet for some inspiration.


Materials you'll need:
Card stock- choose your favorite color and design
Scissor
Glue gun or Glue- hold cookies together
Paper clips
Empty jar or Box- storage for fortune cookies
Bowl - for pattern
LOVE notes- printable/handwritten its all up to you:)


Instructions:
1.) Cut a circle pattern on the card stock. I used a small bowl for the pattern and it works well, about 4 inches wide.
2.) Gently fold the cut out in half, create a crease on the middle. Make sure that two ends align. ( I practice like 3 times to get it perfect..wink)
3.) Insert the LOVE notes and then fold. Put some glue about about an inch from the crease area. Put paper clip to hold them together.
4.) Keep doing the whole process until you done everything..
5.) Remove the paper clip, and make sure that it looks like fortune cookie..:)
6.) Using the color pen, I draw some cute hearts to make it look so cute. If your using pattern paper you don't have to do this step.
7.) DONE! Pretty simple yet so sweet!

I hope you get inspired and hopefully it will help you to create something cute and fun for your love ones this coming Valentines Day. Share me your sweet crafty ideas or something sweet that you have in mind for your love ones. Have a sweet day everyone! See you in few days:)
