Fortune Cookies :)










I found a tutorial for making paper fortune cookies this weekend so I decided to give it a try. They are very easy to make! I had some take-out boxes sitting in my closet so I thought it would make a cute Valentine's Day project. I used Libby Weifenbach's "Love Shack" Kit for the papers, since it's a digital kit I just printed the papers out and used them like traditional scrapbook paper. For the fortunes to go inside the cookies, I was going to make my own but when I saw that one of the papers in Libby's kit had "lovey-dovey" writing on it, I just cut the sentiments from the paper into strips and used that - so easy!

The tutorial for the fortune cookies is here: Paper Fortune Cookies

On another note, DigiShop Talk's January issue of the "Insider" is now up and available for download. LOTS of good stuff in this issue and there's a great hybrid tutorial for making your own 2009 Planner by Melinda Stanley. Did I mention the Insider is Free to all DST members???? If you are not a member, sign up - that's free too!

One more freebie - Oprah has Suze Orman's latest book, Suze Orman's 2009 Action Plan up for a free download this week only. Just click on that link and save it to your computer. Goodness knows we can all use some financial advice with the way things have been lately!


Have a GREAT WEEK!!!
