For all of you lucky enough to be born on Chinese New Year or celebrating a birthday this weekend, I have an idea for you! It comes from Tiffany Bird, author and creator of SimplyModernMom.com. Tiffany’s blog is teeming with terrific tutorials for crafting projects that are simple and special, just the way I like them! She also stocks the Gift Box at SimpleModernMom.com with products that she has handcrafted, so be sure to take a peek at these precious items while you are there.
For Tiffany’s daughter’s 1st birthday, she crafted fortune cookies from pretty fabric and included special birthday wishes from the guests at the party (pictured above) . Then she put the fortune cookies in a mason jar to be kept unopened until a later date, like her daughter’s 16th birthday, similar to the concept of a time capsule.
I love this idea, not only for milestone birthdays, but for baby showers too! Guests can leave the baby a special wish to be opened at a 5th, 10th or even 16th birthday. It’s simply modern and very special!
Thanks Tiffany for sharing this clever craft with us here at The Partybluprints Blog. For detailed instructions and pictures please visit SimplyModernMom.com.
