Fortune Cookie Handout Abby Hargreaves Head RA of New Student Programming Hollins University
The Plan This year I made roughly 150 paper fortune cookies and handed them out to all of the new students on campus.
The Materials Scrapbooking or origami paper Printer paper with fortune-cookie-sized notes (Mine said, “You will have a great first semester at Hollins! Your lucky numbers are 2, 0, 1, 6) Glue (preferably glue sticks)
The Process There are multiple tutorials available online. I used this one: http://hamblyscreenprints.typepad.com/scree n_prints_blog/2010/02/paper-fortune-cookie- tutorial.html http://hamblyscreenprints.typepad.com/scree n_prints_blog/2010/02/paper-fortune-cookie- tutorial.html You probably won’t get the first few perfect, but keep trying – once you get the hang of it it’s quick and easy!
Suggestions from the Editor This program could be adapted into a bulletin boards, door tags, or educational programs in several ways: Create a welcome board and put the fortune cookies with positive quotes along the border. Ask each person to take one at the end of a hall meeting. Put another paper fortune cookie with their name on it on their door with as their door tag. Make a bulletin board with a big fortune cookie in the center and inspiring quotes coming out of it. Use the paper fortune cookies with each person’s name on it to decorate the board and resident’s doors You could also put information about a certain educational topics in the paper fortune cookies to turn socials into fun educational programs
