What you’ll need

Use pretty paper for your cookie shell. You’ll need something round to use as stencil and scissors to cut it out. Lastly, you need glue dots or a hot glue gun.

Assembling your fortune cookies

Fortune Cookie Party Favors - Easy DIY

Use your stencil (I used an old CD) to trace a circle onto your paper and cut that out.

Fold your circle in half and then unfold it. Slip your message in at this step. You can use the same color paper or a different one. Write anything you’d like on it. Since I was going with a party favor theme I wrote “Viviana loves you” and let my daughter scribble on it. Anything heartfelt will do.

This part is tricky and there’s tons of videos online to watch if you need help with it. After unfolding your circle the first time turn it 90 degrees and fold it again. The creases should be perpendicular and form a lowercase t shape.

Push while holding the edge of the circle, push the crease in bringing the two edges together.

Put a glue dot on the outside and press to keep your fortune cookie together. You can also use a glue gun for this step.

What to write in your fortune cookies

The possibilities are endless for messages in your cookies. If you use them as party favors here are some ideas.

  1. Thanks for celebrating with me!
  2. It’s a girl! / It’s a boy! (perfect for a gender reveal if you let everyone open at the same time)
  3. Thanks for coming! <date>
  4. <Name> turned <age>! <date> (ex: Viviana turned 2! Nov. 14, 2017)
  5. <Name > loves you! (like I did above)

Let me know what you would use the paper cookies for in the comments below. What messages would you give your loved ones?
