How fortune-ate I found this craft....

I love this adorable idea! I actually made them this morning as a surprise for my hubby. I happened to have a Chinese take-out style box and I put a tag on it that said "I'm so fortune-ate to have met you 5 years ago today!" The fortune cookies were really easy to make, though I didn't have cute patterned paper like the lady who made them in the picture. I used plain cream colored paper and they still turned out really cute. You def. need strong adhesive to hold them together though -- mine kept popping apart :)
Here is the simple TUTORIAL. ENjoy :)

That is SUCH a cute idea! I am glad that you liked the project. If you get the chance, find a craft or LSS that carries Terrifically Tacky tape or red line tape. It holds anything!! :)
Have a wonderful day!!
