Well here is my very own handmade valentine gift….An Origami Fortune Cookie in a Mini Take Out Box!! I’m using mine as a valentine gift with a personal message but I think it could be used and decorated for all sorts of occasions such as weddings, birthdays, new year or it can even be used as a mini jewellery gift box. I found a template for the take out box at Mirkwood Designs, you will find lots of box templates that you can use for all your handmade crafting needs on there. I was going to create a tutorial to make an origami fortune cookie but I’ve found two great examples that helped me: 1. HP Fortune Cookie Tutorial 2.Origami Fortune Cookies from The Pretty Blog, both come with free templates you can use!!
