Fold an origami fortune cookie, and place a cute surprise inside for your loved one.
Make these origami fortune cookies for a special someone or as Valentine's Day gifts for your kids' classmates. It's the cutest gift wrap for a small gift!
- 3" origami paper in coordinating patterns
- pen or marker
- small gift
Fold one sheet diagonally in both directions, making sure to crease well.
Fold Flaps to Center
Fold side flaps into center to create a diamond shape. Unfold the sheet.
Bring Point Into Center
Fold top point down to the center, and then fold the point over. Crease well. Sharpen the creases by folding the side flaps in. Sharpen the crease in the middle of the diamond. Set aside, and make two more.
Connect First Two Pieces
Connect the first two pieces by inserting the side flaps from one piece into the other piece. It should fit snugly like a puzzle piece.
Flip the connected pieces over, and place a small gift inside. We placed a small toy dinosaur inside.
Connect Last Piece
Insert the side flaps of third piece into the second piece. Tuck the remaining side flaps until you form a box.
Cut a narrow piece of paper for the fortune. Write the fortune (We wrote "You're dino-mite!"), and accordion fold it. Tuck it inside the box, letting it stick out slightly.
