Definition: Aggregate is a collection of items that are gathered together to form a total quantity.

The fleeting moments of knowledge in which we discover our existence are facts that can be committed to memory. We can enlarge this aggregate memory and refashion it as we go through a lifetime. By saving these memories on paper and reconstructing the images of our lives. We see the art of our lives unfolding before us.

Face the brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams.
I believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and playfulness of creating.

Fortune Cookie Tutorial & FotoBella Blog.....

Hi there,
Here is the rest of the FotoBella creations I made and the Tutorial on how to make a paper fortune cookies.   I used FotoBella's BoBunny's Serenity I want it all bundle. So much came with it. Tons of really nice paper, brads, buttons, charms. two packs of stickers, stamps, jewels, Dimensional Stickers, rub-ons, Layered chipboard, journal tags and more chipboard stickers......

I would love to have an outside party Asian food of course... using the lanterns in the trees and the fortune cookie gift boxes as take homes. So fun.

If you would like to see the whole collection you can find it live on FotoBella's Blog.

Fortune Cookie Tutorial


What you will need:
Paper Bo Bunny Serenity I Want It All Bundle. I used Serenity Tomoko Side B.
Paper circle punch or pencil and scissors.
Hot Glue Gun or Ranger Wonder Tape.
Fortune Cookie Fortunes…. There is a link below.

Start by tracing a circle on the paper or Punch out a circle. Any circle from about 3-4" works well. These are 3”.

Fold the circle in half, but do not crease the circle.

Hold the paper as shown and begin the folding process. Keep in mind that I had to take the photo, so normally your other hand would be holding the opposite side together.

Bring the two sides together. They look more realistic, if you do not fold them in half, but rather, off-center. You want to do this before you apply adhesive.

I recommend a strong adhesive, because of the pressure on the sides. I used Hot Glue and you could also use two strips of Wonder Tape. Keep the pieces small enough, so they do not show.

Bring the sides together again, and there you have a paper cookie. You are finished.

I printed off fortunes from this site: Fortune Cookie Sayings. If you are wanting the boxes shown above I used my Silhouette Cameo SD and you can find the cutting files from Silhouette Shop.

Thanks and wishing you good fortune.
