This Week: FORTUNE COOKIE FAVORS
I love the contrasting look of plain craft or newsprint paper, combined with details of fancy, decorative paper. Wrapping paper is a good weight for this project. Change up the colors and messages inside to fit any occasion. Make a special winning gold ticket to hide inside of one.
Or get the artwork in the "artwork downloads" column to the right. Print it out on 4" x 6" photo paper and make sure the print size is 100%. You might need to save the file and print using a photo application.
And please, if you use my artwork, send me a picture of what you made, so I can pin it to my pinterest board.
FIG. 1 Supplies: Floral wire, and wire cutters, A 3 ½” circle (like a jar lid), masking tape, scissors and pinking sheers, a pen that writes on photos, artwork printout, pencil, ruler, glue stick, and a variety of paper. I’ve used: wrapping paper that looks like craft paper, crepe paper, and some decorative wrapping paper details.
FIG. 2 Cut out a3 ½” circle and decorate it how you like.
FIG. 3 Cut a 10 ½” piece of wire and tape the ends together in a circle, slightly smaller than the paper disk.
FIG. 4 Coat the whole back of the disk with glue, especially the edges. Sandwich the wire between two layers of paper and press down thoroughly to enclose the wire. Trim the edges with pinking sheers.
FIG. 5 Press the discs under some books until the glue is thoroughly dry.
FIG. 6 Cut out the fortune papers and glue some decorative paper on the back. Write fortunes on them. Press until dry.
FIG. 7 Fold the cookie in half.
FIG. 8 Start folding the cookie in half the other way. Insert the fortune.
FIG. 9 Finesse the cookie to fold in half. You’ll need to pinch and straighten the ruffles and wires, while pushing up on the middle.
FIG. 10 The fortune should peek out one side.
