PTI Blog Hop!

thank you SO much to everyone who voted for me!! I am so appreciative!! k

Its Blog Hop Night! Make sure and check out all the other blogs with projects here.





I have made fortune cookies with my students before and knew that was what I wanted to make from our squares of paper. I made these from the 6x6 pad of Father Knows Best paper pad.
Start by tracing a circle on the paper. Any circle from about 3-4" works well.
Cut out the circle.
Fold the circle in half, but do not crease the circle.
Hold the paper as shown and begin the folding process. Keep in mind that I had to take the photo, so normally your other hand would be holding the opposite side together. :)
Bring the two sides together. They look more realistic, if you do not fold them in half, but rather, off-center. You want to do this before you apply adhesive.
I recommend a strong adhesive, because of the pressure on the sides. I used two strips of Wonder Tape. Keep the pieces small enough, so they do not show.
Bring the sides together again, and there you have it! :)
I printed off fortunes from this site: Fortune Cookie Sayings. But, with all the great sayings that PTI has, I am sure that they could be stamped for the appropriate occasion. I am thinking graduation, baby shower, bridal shower...
Don't forget all the fun and contests going on at the PTI Forum! And vote for your favorite project! :)
thanks for stopping by!

Hi! I was linked to this blog for these awesome fortune cookies. My Girl Guide district is doing an Asian camp in 2 weeks and they will be a great addition for the older girls.

As I was checking the info for the fortune cookies one of your slide show LOs jumped out at me - my DD#1 also called ketchup "kepitch". I am so going to do a LO about this now.

I added you to my faves - love your work!

That is the best idea ever. I am going to make some paper fortune cookies. You can also print off some of the virtual fortune cookies found in http://www.mychinesefortune.com/ . They are more funny.

Thank you for this! We made a donation to the local hospital instead of having bonbonnieres for my sons Baptism and this was the perfect way to let our guests know...

What a wonderful idea. I am a PTA President and was looking for an end-of-year "thank you" idea for my PTA Board. I made the fortune cookies, and for fortunes, I put individualized notes specific to that Board member and the great things they had done that year. I love how they turned out!
