  • 1/4" circle hand punch
  • Hole puncher
  • Paper trimmer or scissors
  • Patterned paper
  • Glitter
  • Colored cardstock
  • Ribbon


Fortune Cookies:

  1. First decide upon your ‘fortunes’ and print them in your word processing program.

    Note: You’ll want your phrases to stretch no longer than 4.5” long and no more than a few typed lines tall.
  2. Then, you’ll gather patterned papers and cut a 4.5” circle for each fortune using the Ultra ShapeXpress along with the smallest circle from the Super-Sized Circle Set.
  3. Gently fold circle in half, creasing only  1” in the middle.
  4. Open circle and add a glue dot approximately 1/4” away from the crease on both sides of the crease.

  5. Then pinch the circle in half in the opposite direction of the crease, but do not crease, instead, grab the opposing points with your thumb and middle finger, while pushing inward on the crease with your pointer finger.
  6. Once the crease starts caving move your pointer finger and tuck the thumb and pointer finger in between the paper to pinch the glue dots together.

  7. Slide fortune into cookie.

    Note: Once you get the hang of this process you can tuck the fortune in the cookie before collapsing the paper to form the cookie shape.

Customized Confetti:

  1. Customize a standard bag of plain white confetti by adding small pops of color and sparkle. Create  ¼” hand-held circle punches and add them to your confetti.


Jingle Bell Bottle Embellishments:

  1. Decorate kid-friendly wine bottles by covering the labels with patterned paper, cardstock and sparkle paper.

  2. Create a few numbered cut-outs and add the New Year to each bottle.
  3. Add a few ribbons to finish them off.

    Note: You can make quick and easy invitations using the same numbered cut-outs you added to each wine bottle!
