Begin by cutting circles in your scrapbook paper 4 to 4.5″ circle. You can trace something to make your circles. If you have any electronic cutter like a Cricut or a Silhouette, it makes cutting circles a breeze.
Next, you are going to want to cut all of your fortunes to size. You can create your own or use the FREE ones that I created for you.
Print your paper fortunes and place one fortune onto the back of a circle and gently fold in half without creasing.
Using your finger, gently press the middle of the paper the opposite way making sure that the fortune doesn’t slide out. Then put a dab of hot glue to hold it together.
I got this mailbox from Target Dollar Spot and it was perfect for storing these in.
Fill it with a couple fortune cookies and candies and you have an adorable gift for a kiddos, a teacher or a neighbor!
