A Little bit of Fun









Paper fortune cookies have been around for some time but I wanted to be able to make them quick and easy...... so here's how. The Sizzix circle die is just the right size. Copy the template and transfer the markings to a chipboard circle... I punched holes so I could mark the paper easily. Mark your circles on the wrong side and score between the marks. Fold... the solid lines are mountain folds and the dashed are valley folds. Print your fortunes, cut into strips and place in the cookie with the ends sticking out. Glue half the cookie leaving a gap at each end where the strip pokes out. Dab a small amount of glue at the bottom crease and hold with a clothes peg until dry. Embellish to suit the occassion or serve just plain!............
