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.

easy valentine’s day gift–hot cocoa spoons!

valentines gift

We’re quickly approaching Valentine’s Day, so I wanted to share one last quick and easy DIY perfect for teacher, neighbor, and everyone-else gifts!

hot cocoa spoons

I’m a huge fan of hot cocoa in the Winter, so these DIY Hot Cocoa spoons are right up my alley. Drop into a cellophane bag, add a hot cocoa packet, and tie with some twine or ribbon, and you’re done!

Start with some wooden spoons, and the chocolate of your choice. Melting chocolate is GREAT for this, as it hardens well and the spoons don’t need to be refrigerated. I had this delicious Dulce de leche from Trader Joe’s, though, that I wanted to try, and all I can say is “wow.” So good. While your spoon is still wet, dip into the toppings of your choice.

Let dry on a piece of parchment, and you’re done! I stamped “xoxo” on the handles, which is completely optional but completely adorable in my opinion :)
