After the rush of the holidays, I always find myself looking forward to the sugary sweetness of Valentine’s Day. Of course, that’s in a purely figurative sense because my kids and I definitely had our yearly sugar allotment all in the month of December. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about candy and chocolates! These super fun Valentine’s Day DIY fortune cookies are great for kids or adults and won’t cause any emergency dental visits! These fun paper creations are filled with Valentine coupons for your loved ones.
- Darice Chinese Take-Out Boxes
- Core’dinations Scrapbook Paper
- Core’dinations Sand It Set (optional)
- Darice Hot Glue Gun or Glue Dots
- Free “Valentine’s Day Fortune Cookie Coupons” Printable
Step 1. Print the free “Valentine’s Day Fortune Cookie Coupons” Printable and cut out the cookie template and desired fortune strips. The free printable includes fortunes that are appropriate for kids, more adult-themed ones, and a bunch of blank ones in case you want to write out your own. Don’t worry, the adult ones aren’t too risqué! They just include more adult activities like “wine & cheese” or “breakfast in bed.”
Step 3. Apply desired adhesive medium to the inside of one circle and gently fold the opposite side to meet it (making sure not to fold too tightly on the crease!) You can insert the fortune before or after folding. Press on adhesive section until it’s secure.
Step 4. Fold the DIY fortune cookies inward, apply adhesive to the corner, and press to secure. If you’re using a heavy cardstock, you might have a problem with getting a low-adhesive glue to work. Try switching to a hot glue gun if your cookies keep splitting open. Repeat steps until all your DIY fortune cookies are completed.
Your Valentine’s Day fortune cookie coupons are ready to give! Whether it’s for your kids or a significant other, they’re going to love opening each of these DIY fortune cookies! Hope you all have a wonderfully lovely Valentine’s Day!
