What you’ll need
- Some colourful A4 paper, cut in half lengthways
- A stapler
- A hole punch
- Some string
And some fortunes, obviously. Write your own or just download our suggestions if you’re short of time (or inclination)
1. punch two holes
Punch two holes in one side of the paper. One should be roughly a third of the way down. The other, a third of the way up.
2. staple the ends
Roll the paper, lengthways, into a loop and staple the ends together to make a ring.
3. staple the bottom
Pinch together the side WITHOUT the holes in it and staple in place.
4. fill the fortunes
Fill with a fortune of your choice. It’s more fun if they’re totally random. So even you don’t know which fortune each friend will get.
5. tie it together
Thread the holes with some string and tie the two sides together. Don’t tie it too tight. You don’t want your fortune cookies to be impossible to open.
