How to Replace Fortune Cookie Messages
I have the COOLEST Valentine’s gift idea to share with you today!!
This one is for your spouse. I love fortune cookies, and with Valentine’s Day only a few days away, I was contemplating what to get for my husband. So I came up with this! I’ll still buy him something else to go with this idea I’m about to share, but I think this idea is fun, easy, original, and definitely unexpected!! And a guy would definitely love it!
Are you ready?
Fortune cookies with your own PG/PG-13 rated fortunes put inside, and then magically sealed back up, and closed back up in the package!
Okay, not magically, but I’ll show you how to open up a pre-made fortune cookie, take out the old fortune, add your own steamy fortune to it, and close it up so it looks exactly like it did before…
Your unsuspecting spouse will wonder why in the world you gave him fortune cookies for Valentine’s Day, until he opens a cookie and reads the fortune. And then you’ll score some major points!
And I included a free printable if you don’t want to come up with your own! This present really couldn’t be easier. It only takes a few minutes, but is so fun!
So here we go!Supplies:
- Fortune Cookies (I bought a box of 12 at the Dollar Store)
- Free Printable
- Steamer Basket (used to steam vegetables)
- Flat Iron (optional)
2. Carefully open up the fortune cookie packages (you’ll be resealing them later), remove all of the fortune cookies, and place all of the cookies in the steamer basket. Steam them for 5-10 minutes, until they are soft and easy to open.
3. Pull out one fortune cookie at a time with a pair of tongs, carefully open it up, pull out the old fortune, and replace it with your new fortune (my printables or your own). Fold back up the cookie to its’ original shape, and set it down on the counter to cool and harden. Repeat with all of the fortune cookies and fortunes.
