  • Prepare your paper circles by using a round object such as a bowl or DVD. Outline the circle with a pencil and remember the size of the circles determines the size of your fortune cookies. We found that a 12cm bowl worked perfectly.

  • Hold the circle as shown and take the outer edges and pull them down to meet each other. You may need to use your index finger to push the centre of the circle when pulling the ends together.

  • Place a glue dot (or a dab of glue) between the ends and press together to hold. If using glue then hold together until it’s dried.
