Make a Fortune

It is my good fortune to bring you today’s Valentine’s Day gift idea. Four dollars and about forty minutes.

That’s what you’ll need to create you own.

Using a glass, trace a circle onto poster board. Cut out.

Trace and cut circles from red and pink sheets of foam.

Place glitter in one bowl and Craft Foam Glue in another.

Using a craft brush, apply foam glue to half of foam circle on both sides.

Dip both sides in glitter.

Let dry.

While drying, cut stripes of paper and write Valentine messages.

Put slip of paper in center of foam circle, parallel to line of glitter. Using your hot glue gun, glue in two places.

First, glue glittered end of circle to non-glittered end. Pinch until dry.

Second, fold foam in half again and use a clothes pin to pinch inside pieces.

Set aside and let dry.


Place in decorative container with a few pieces of holiday candy and present to your special valentine… or day care provider, office colleagues, neighbors, or kids.

Special Note: Struble Suds called last night to say that sometime later today, they would post results from our Second Annual Snack Throw Down. Visit them at their site to see whose recipe reigned supreme.

Signing off until tomorrow. And hey… how about sharing a few ideas for Valentine messages we could include in our fortune cookies.
