Fortune Cookie


  • Double-sided tape
  • Scissors
  • Wrapping paper
  • Glue 
  • Compass
  • Money 


  1. Step 1

    Cut out and glue back-to-back two 5-inch squares of wrapping paper. Let dry, then use a compass to draw a circle inside the square. Cut out, and roll loosely to form a tube. Secure overlapping edge with double-sided tape.

  2. Step 2


    Photocopy or hand write a fortune on a slip of paper; fold a bill lengthwise into a thin strip; slide fortune and money into tube. With overlapping edge facing up, bend tube ends down until they meet. Affix with double-sided tape.
