Cute Cookie

I made these super easy fortune cookies along with a mini Chinese take out box last night. I usually don't like to share my cookies but I was excited to share these with you.

Here's a template for the mini Chinese take out box.

Just print at a full 8.5 x 11 inches. You can even print directly on your 8.5 x 11" pattern paper or trim down 12 x 12" paper.

I made mine using Whisper White cardstock and then covered the box with different pattern papers from the Designer Series paper pack Razzleberry Lemonade(115675). This is my first attempt and it is a little messy but I learned from my mistakes and the next one should go together a little easier.

How to make the cute little fortune cookies-

Seriously WAY easy...

1) Cut a 3.5" circle out of the paper of your choice. I used more of the Designer Series paper from the new Razzleberry Lemonade paper pack(115675). { Circle Scissor Plus(1125390) is perfect for this! You get a perfect circle in seconds - everytime!}

2) Hold two ends together. Don't crease, just hold the ends together like a taco, sort of.


3) Then fold the other two ends together slowly.


4) Put a dab of adhesive in the middle of the fold.


If you want to add a sentiment or a little hand written note use a strip of paper about 6.5" long and 1/4" wide. I used Happy Birthday from the Fundamental Phrases set(114968). Stamping or writing is easier when done first then cut to size. Slide the strip through the taco fold before pinching together.


I trimmed the ends of my strip into a 'v' and then curled the paper a little to add character.

These would be great as the gift tag for a gift wrapped in a Chinese take out box.

You could revamp the coupon book idea. Make a bunch of the little guys then fill them with "coupon" strips.

Cute party invites or party favors or party decorations....I could go on and on.

If you make some of these email a pic or link a photo in the comments. I'd love to see them and share your ideas and inspiration with everyone.

Have a wonderful Independence Day weekend!!
