Because Chinese New Year & Valentine's Day fall on the same day (:
I haven't posted a DIY in awhile so I decided I just had to post one for Chinese New Year & Valentine's Day since they fall on the same day .

Combine both celebrations , & I've come up with Valentine's Day chinese paper fortune cookies .
( paper : for those who can't bake & hey , you get to keep it longer! )

I got this idea of the paper fortune cookie somewhere off the internet ages ago , but here's my twist on it (:

  • How to make a fortune cookie plushie. Valentine's Day Paper Fortune Cookies . - Step 1
    Step 1

    Firstly , get coloured paper . Choose what colour you want your paper cookie to be .

    I usually use textured brown paper , to make it look more realistic . But since it's Valentine's Day , I opted for pink (:

    Firstly draw a circle onto the paper . The bigger the circle , the bigger the cookie .

    I used a mini Starbucks cup to get the circle because I wanted mine small .

    Bring the two end sides together .
    When you do that , the middle part will fold in .

    If you want it to look more realistic , fold it off center . So it'll be uneven .

    I suggest grayscaling it or making the lines fade before printing it out .

    Or if you aren't as lazy as me , you could print a copy & cut it out , & then place it on another paper & cut out so you won't have the lines/writing on it .
