Girl Scout Fortune Cookie Valentines

Valentine's Day is coming up! I love getting festive with the kids, even if it's a Hallmark holiday. It's just a great reminder to love one another... something this world could use more of. At our last troop meeting one of the girls mentioned the fortune cookie valentine and asked if we could make them. In the spirit of keeping it girl-led, I said of course!

I had to take it up a notch and make it Girl Scout themed so I created the little fortune strips that they could include in their cookie.. It has little Girl Scouts on them!!! So adorable!

Materials:

  • pencil
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • craft foam (Dollar Tree had the hearts foam in a 12 pack!)
  • Printable Fortune strip

Step 1: 

Use a circle template (about 5-6 inches in diameter) and trace your pattern.

Step 2:

Cut out your circle and the fortune strip.

Step 3:

Place your strip in the center of your circle and add a dab of hot glue at the bottom of the circle (like shown in the picture below).

Step 4:

Fold over your craft foam and hold lightly until the glue is secured. 
 

Step 5:

Fold the half circle in half and use a dab of hot glue to secure.

Aren't these the cutest things you ever seen?

Valentines: Date Night Bucket List!

A friend of mine from work had mentioned how her hubby took it upon himself to do the sweetest thing ever! He created her a bucket list of dates.

When I told my hubby about the idea, he was equally excited as I was. Together we created a list of 48 exciting dates to liven up our marriage and put the spark back into date night!

I decided to take it a step further and surprise him on V-Day... Shhhh I pasted the bucket list on the inside of a smash book I created. This way we can check them off one by one and have the memories all in one place! I hope you all have a very fun filled Valentine's Day!!
