Did you know you can make paper fortune cookies… for pennies!

Or FREE if you have extra scrapbook paper laying around like I do.

I just use a drinking glass to trace circles on the page.

The bigger the circle the bigger the cookie will be.  I

 find a 3 inch circle works pretty well.

Write your love notes on a small strip of paper and place in the middle, you can fold it in half  to help keep it inside and not sticking out the ends.

Fold the circle in half, but DO NOT crease the end flat.

Put your thumb and your middle finger on the ends, and use your pointer finger gentle press the middle inward.

Place a small glue dot in the fold to hold it in place.

Easy at that you have some very  CUTE Valentines fortune cookies!
