Homemade Valentines

This year I wanted to do something different for Valentine's Day, I didn't want to buy those cheezy, yet popular, premade cards. So I found this idea for paper fortune cookies and adapted it to make your own Valentine. They are so cute, they look like fortune cookies and the "fortune" is a slip of paper with a Valentine message. I thought it was fitting since Chinese New Year is upon us.

Here's my prototype (geeze I sound like a geek!):




They're a little bigger than I wanted so the final product will be smaller. Friday we're going to a playdate/Valentine exchange and Big D will need some to exchange at school, so I'll be making a lot, but they're super easy! There's even enough room to fit a little treat inside!

If you want to make your own, the directions can be found here:
