Happy New Year!

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Chinese New Year's eve was last week, but since the celebration lasts for two weeks, I figured I had a bit of time to decorate my office. Earlier this week, I made paper fortune cookies using these instructions. All the fortunes are somewhat work related.
They were a big hit! Several disappeared before I could take a picture so I had to make more to bring in and then get my picture.

  • I happen to have a Quickutz 4x4 die with a circle, but you could hand cut your circles.
  • Lighter weight paper (but not as light as Chatterbox) worked better than heavier weight paper (Basic Grey, Creative Imagination).
  • If you use heavier paper, you need extra strong adhesive to hold the cookie in place. Glue dots won't cut it.
