new year’s nuts

Sorry for the delay, but I didn’t want to spoil the surprise for those I gave the presents to :)

Here’s how you can make some nutty fortune cookies:
(maybe not for NYE but for a dinner party? as a tiny gift? just in between? filled with a bracelet? a dollar? a lucky penny? earrings? a ring*? ….)

  • bake the walnuts in the oven for about 15 minutes at 200 degrees
  • afterwards, you should be able to pry them open with a knife
  • a spoon should help you to get rid of the nuts themselves
  • put it in a nutshell: small gift, glitter, printed sayings or quotes
  • glue the matching half on and close possible gaps with several layers of glue


* to quote a line from Marilyn Monroe’s ‘Santa Baby‘: …forgot to mention one little thing: a ring; I don’t mean on the phone, Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight…

    it’d be great to leave them behind on trains … most people would think it’s just a plain nut left behind… those curious enough will find a little surprise…
