Because who wouldn’t like to count down to Valentine’s Day by eating a yummy fortune cookie and reading a sweet love note each day?!  
 

Totally sweet, right?  And, of course, we’re hooking you up with the free printables to make your own countdown.  Score!  We commissioned Jennafer {the super sweet and talented designer over at OhCreativeOne} to design the box cover label AND some printable Valentine fortune cookie fortunes to slip inside each cookie.  She even included some blank fortunes so you can totally customize them if you’d like.  
 

HERE’S HOW TO MAKE YOUR COUNTDOWN
 

1.  Grab a couple boxes of fortune cookies at the store.

{You can totally make your own fortune cookies, if you wish, but I’m all about quick and easy!  I just picked up these babies at Walmart.  You can even buy them on Amazon.  NOTE: You’ll need 14 cookies, but you may break a couple of cookies while replacing the fortunes so make sure you get extra.}  

2.  Unwrap a cookie and wrap it with a slightly dampened paper towel.  Microwave on high for 20 to 30 seconds.

{The time may vary depending on your microwave.  The cookie is ready when it has softened enough to open without breaking.}

3.  Quickly remove the cookie from the microwave and gently pull it open.  Remove the fortune and replace it with one of our printable Valentine fortunes.

4.  Gently fold the cookie back into its original shape.

{Side note- the first time, I completely hid the printable fortune inside the cookie.  But afterward I decided that I liked the look of the little hearts sticking out of the cookies.  Totally up to you.}

6.  Dip your fortune cookies into melted chocolate and add sprinkles.

7.  Place each fortune cookie into a mini baking cup.

8.  Put your fortune cookies inside a small box lined with tissue paper.
