diy paper fortune cookies {a tutorial}

paper crafts

Looking for a fun paper craft? An easy Valentine’s Day treat? These fortune cookies are a simple, versatile, and fun paper crafting project! I created them using some of my favorite adult coloring book pages, but you can use scrapbook paper or wrapping paper for a fun twist!

Materials:

Step 1: Use a lid or glass to trace circles onto your paper. Cut out. The larger your circles, the larger your paper fortune “cookies” will be.

Step 2: Fold your circle in half, but do not crease it. Insert your paper fortune inside your cookie. Hold your folded circle with your left hand. With your right hand, put your thumb on one end of the cookie and your middle finger on the other. Use your index finger to gently press the middle of the cookie inward to get that fortune cookie shape.

26 favorite fixer upper vignettes + tablescapes

A vignette, in decorating terms, is a small grouping of objects on a shelf/table/bookcase, that tell a story about you and your home. A well-styled vignette is pleasing to the eye and adds a bit of charm and character to your space. It’s fairly safe to say that there are few people who can design a vignette quite like Chip & Joanna Gaines, of Fixer Upper fame.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite Fixer Upper vignettes. These are so inspiring, and I love seeing themes emerge as to what makes a great vignette (but that’ll have to wait for another post)! Enjoy!
