Step 1. To begin making your paper fortune cookies, cut out 4 inch circles – however many you would like to make. Bend it over as shown below — don’t fold the circle completely, you don’t want to completely crease the edge, but just fold it enough so it has a mini taco shape.
Step 2. Push on the cardstock along the backside to weaken the fibers so that you can easily bend the ends forward. Secure with hot glue. When securing with hot glue, you will want to press the glued ends together for at least 10 seconds, or until you can sense that the glue is drying thoroughly.
Step 3. Trim down some of your inspirational vellum quotes to insert inside the paper fortune cookies. Again, get creative and make this craft your own but using any kind of quotes or text you’d like. You can even print your text on colored paper to either reflect whatever occasion you’re celebrating, or to complement the color of your fortune cookies. It’s totally up to you!
Step 4. Slide the quotes inside your paper fortune cookies.
