Kootenay Wedding; Custom Fortune Cookies

What is more fun than ripping into a fortune cookie and laughing with your friends over your respective fortunes?
Kind Over Matter recently posted an adorable idea for custom fortune cookies that I thought you might like.  Theirs was an American Thanksgiving theme, which we're over by now here in Canada, but the fun and interactive concept is so great for a personable Kootenay wedding.  They can also also be upgraded using fabric "cookies" and embossed ribbon fortunes {as seen below}.
While you'll have to research the fabric variety, KOM has provided What You Need for the paper option:

. 3-4" diameter circle to trace and custom fortunes - or - PDF file from link
. Color printer
. Cardstock
. Scissors
. GLUE DOTS, a glue stick or strong double-sided tape
. Paperclips or mini-clothespins if you are using a glue stick
1. Find a 3-4 inch diameter circle to trace onto patterened paper. {It's fun to coordinate the papers with small/large-scale prints.} Cut out your fortune cookie paper. Create your own fun fortunes centering around the bridal couple ie: "You will play a significant role in the lives of Matt & Anna's 7 children."or use the ones via the link provided.
2. Fold your cookie in half, but do not make a crease
3. Begin folding like so
4. Finish folding
5. Apply Glue Dot or if you are using a glue stick apply liberally or you can use a strong double-sided tape. If you use a glue stick make sure you leave a few hours for the cookies to dry. They will have to be held together by mini-clothespins, or a paperclip would work just as well

Just slip your fortunes inside them and voila!
