Arts and Crafts

With a little red food coloring, it would be easy enough to make real fortune cookies with a holiday theme. Either way, you get to include your own, very personal fortunes (and add "in bed" whenever you like). An even easier way to do this is to buy a bag of fortune cookies at the grocery store, and use tweezers to remove the fortunes and replace them with yours.

If just thinking about all this hasn't completely exhausted you, there are several more Valentine craft ideas to inspire you on the Martha Stewart website.

  1. Brilliant research Rosemary! I love the fortune cookies especially. I'm going to give them a try. I also have a little surprise in stall for my hubby which is arts and craftsy but which I had better not reveal yet. I've bought all the bits for it... just now have to work out how to make it without making a mess!

    Have a great week Rosemary
    Big love

  2. Oh boy, Rosemary. I envy you and Grace. My arts and crafts skills are limited to what I did in my first grade classroom. They all thought I was brilliant, but I knew better. I suppose CJ will have to settle for a post-it note or something.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thanks for the great Valentines ideas. I need all the help I can get! I love the fortune cookie idea, Rosemary. And consider yourself invited over to Messy Marriage. I'm hosting my very first Wedded Wednesday Link up today. I'd love to have you join us! :)

  4. Wow, Rosemary, these are wonderful ideas. I’m not much of an arts and crafts person myself. Most of the stuff I have tried creating wind up in the waste basket before anyone in my family could find them. But these crafts you presented are pretty cool and seem to be pretty. I’ve already tried the origami heart with some success. I’ll use better paper next time. Anyways, I’m really grateful that you’ve found these for us to use. It will make this Valentine’s day a little more original than some of the ones we have had in the past. I also think these will be really cool crafts for the kids to make for their Valentine’s day exchange at school, instead of bringing those boring precut cartoon cards you buy at grocery stores. I’ll be checking this blog often to see if you have any more cool tips. Common Marriage Issues
