Paper Fortune Cookies for Valentines Day
1. Choose a paper that is perfect for your theme. Cut your paper into circles at least 3-inches in diameter. You can use your bowls and coasters as template. Fold your paper into half (but not entirely ), just enough to make a crease at the center.
2. Place your paper strip with messages or fortune at the center of the wrong side. Fold it into half with the crease line horizontally facing at you.
3. Hold the paper as shown in this photo. Bring the two corner ends together by push down while bending the crease at the center. Add a drop of glue just below the crease to hold the corner edges together. I also recommend using a double-sided tape, which is a much stronger adhesive, and you don’t have to wait for it to dry.
