Express Yourself Hostess stamp set (#130339)

Ideal for a fun themed party or just to send a little love to those in your life... these Fortune Paper "Cookie" is a great way to send some care! 
 
Depending on the size of 'cookie' you wish to create a circle with the paper you chose (here is the new and upcoming Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper from the upcoming New Occasions Mini Catalog coming out next week!
 
Using Scraps of paper, stamp a sentiment (or hand-write one) that will be a pick-me-up!  This would make a for a FUN Party Game and more!
Here this sentiment from the Hostess Exclusive 'Express Yourself' stamp set in Island Indigo ink matches this paper.  Cutting the ends to have a fun tag like feel is a dash of flair.
Cut the Circle Size you desire with the Circle Framelits... fold in 1/2.  Place your sentiment inside at this point.  Tuck the center of the round 'back' so that it starts folding closed.  Using adhesive to hold the center closed and it resembles the cookie!
 
What a cool look this Venetian romance paper is.  Create this to match the vibe of the party or person's style.
Depending on the size of the circle you cut, the paper 'cookie' may fold a little along the back.  A strong adhesive in the center of the fold will help secure the cookie to hold it's shape. 
Place the adhesive in the center and it will stick - I did find that SNAIL isn't as strong as Glue Dots, Sticky Strip or Hot Glue.
The double sided paper has a cool look as the coordinating style peeks through.
Depending on how you use it - deliver a sweet wish to those you care about!
It's sweet that you came by today.  How 'fortunate' I am that you are here (lol).  I try to post daily and hope that you will pop by and visit often.. bring your family and friends along for the ride!
 
Take a spin on how you send a wish and sweeten it with this unique and quick paper 'cookie' that won't add to your waist line - lol.  Deliver a sweet wish, a Fun way to play a game at a party, and more... all in one quick and unique wrapped up package.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
