These paper fortune cookies are a fun craft for both kids and adults. You could make them with your family for Valentine’s Day. Or get your friends together and craft some for Galentine’s Day. That being said, these fortune cookies would make such pretty little party favors any time of the year — just craft them before a dinner party and add them to each place setting for a fun surprise.

Our new frosted paper melon pack works so perfectly for this Valentine’s craft, but of course you can use whatever paper you have on hand. Once you’re done crafting your paper fortune cookies, you can turn them into valentines by slipping a sweet note inside each of them. Or maybe your kiddos want to write some funny fortunes instead. Whatever you write, this is another way to get creative with your craft!
