Five Tips for Making DIY Fortune Cookies

Ever since I saw these on Pinterest several months ago, I knew they would be perfect for Valentine's Day.

But then I shared them with my family -- and the look on my six year old son's face when he realized it was I who had written the message for him was, as they say, priceless.
