Valentine Fortune Cookies

I got this really cute idea to make Valentine fortune cookies from Martha Stewart.

Her site has the complete step by step instructions of how to make them. I did 2 different things when making mine than what her directions stated. First, I used hot glue. This worked very nicely! I don't have a half of a hour to wait for glue to dry! Second, I made the cookies a 4" instead of the 4 1/2" she suggests. I thought they looked a little too big and not very realistic.

I think I am going to get a smaller Chinese carry out box and place two fortune cookies inside. I am going to also put some Hershey Kisses in the box. Jaiden wants to give these to her classmates instead of the paper Valentine cards.
