Homemade Fortune Cookies + Free Valentines Fortune Printable

I'm not sure when or where I discovered homemade fortune cookies on the internet. It was probably Pinterest. I have been meaning to make them for a while now, and Valentine's Day seemed perfect! I literally made these on Wednesday. What is with all you people making your Valentine's crafts in January?

I'm pretty sure my seven year-old will be the only child in class with fortune cookies, let alone homemade ones. Plus, me excluded, everyone at my house loves Chinese restaurants and fortune cookies! My husband said these were the best tasting fortune cookies ever! What wife doesn't feel totally accomplished and flattered when her husband says something like that?
