I picked up a variety of goodies, and wanted to make some homemade Valentines with a twist—or should I say with a FORTUNE-it twist! I made these cute glittery paper fortune cookies with fun messages inside.

Easy Paper Fortune Cookie Valentine craft idea for kids

It’s actually pretty easy to make a paper fortune teller.

This is what I used:

  • Glitter paper (I used red and pink)
  • Plastic cup (for circle template)
  • Paper cutter and free printable (download your’s below) to make the fortunes
  • Gel pens to add personal note inside each fortune
  • Valentine stickers
  • Scissors
  • Glue Dots

Now, here is what you need to prep the craft and make your own fortune cookie Valentines:

  • Cut out the paper circles. I used the top of a plastic cup as a template, and then cut out each circle from the cool glitter paper.
  • Print out your paper fortunes from my free printable which reads “I’m so FORTUNE-it to have you in my world VALENTINE!”. I cut 1/2″ paper strips from a regular letter-sized sheet of paper with a paper cutter. You can also make up your own on your own strips of paper.

What you need to make paper fortune cookies Valentines


After my circles were cut out, I wrote any additional message on my paper fortunes with the glitter pens, grabbed the decorative stickers and my glue dots.

Then you can make your own homemade paper fortune cookies in just a few easy steps:

  1. First fold your paper circle in half and crease just in the middle.
  2. Grab your paper fortune and hold in the inside center of your circle.
  3. Now fold your paper circle in half the other way. With one finger, press inward on the crease you made in the first step.
  4. Then use your other hand to help the circular edges of the circle fold inside themselves. Bring the two outer edges together to form the fortune cookie shape.
  5. Secure the paper fortune cookie in the middle with a glue dot.
  6. Place your fingers inside to fully secure the cookie together.
  7. Roll one side of your paper fortune into the fortune cookie.
  8. Add a decorative sticker on the paper fortune that remains sticking out of the fortune.
