What You Need:

- PDF file
- Color printer
- Cardstock
- Scissors
- GLUE DOTS, a glue stick or strong double-sided tape
- Paperclips or mini-clothespins if you are using a glue stick

Directions for Thanksgiving Fortune Cookies

1. Print your fortune cookies & fortunes, cut them out like shown

2. Fold your cookie in half, but do not make a crease

2a. (not shown) Place fortune inside bend

3. Begin folding like so

4. Finish folding

5. Apply Glue Dot or if you are using a glue stick apply liberally or you can use a strong double-sided tape. If you use a glue stick make sure you leave a few hours for the cookies to dry. They will have to be held together by mini-clothespins (like shown), or a paperclip would work just as well

If you will be using a glue stick there is a detailed photo tutorial in our Printable Spring Fortune Cookies Post that will guide you!

If you want to use your own patterned paper, instead of printing out the PDF, a 3-4 inch circle works best. You can most definitely type, print or write out your own fortunes too!

I think these would be so great to use at a Thanksgiving dinner table setting!

Have an amazing weekend everyone, Happy Autumn!

Oooo! I'm hosting Thanksgiving this year -- 1st time in a while. I was looking for cute table setting ideas to do with the kiddos to get in the mood. We're SO putting these at every plate. Can't wait!!

What am I thankful for?

You! :D
