Origami Fortune Cookie
How we did it:
- craft foam
- drawing compass
- hook and loop fasteners
- dollar bill
Gather your materials.
Draw a circle with a compass onto a sheet of craft foam. Make the circle as large as you can without going off the craft foam. Then, cut it out.
Fold the circle in half and crease it.
Open the circle and fold it in thirds perpendicular to the crease you just made. Then, set it aside.
Perpendicular means at a 90 degree angle to any given line, plane, or surface.
Turn the fortune cookie over and place one hook fastener and one loop fastener about 1 ½ inches from the center crease.
Write a fortune on a thin strip of paper. We wrote “Happy New Year!” and “Wishing you good luck & fortune in the Year of the Dog!” Then, insert a dollar bill and the fortune into the “pocket” you made by folding the circle in thirds.
Fold the fortune cookie in half, connecting the two halves by sticking the fasteners together.
Puff up the fortune cookie by pushing in the sides. Now your fortune cookie is ready for gifting!
