Inkling: black & white new year’s party – fortune cookies

The Christmas rush is over. Presents are unwrapped, the tree is dropping needles and you have a to-do list a mile long. If however, you want to throw a New Year’s Eve party, you can quickly pull together a fun black and white theme.

These paper fortune cookies are easy to make and would add a fun twist to your party. All you need is paper, tape and a gel pen. You can find the how-to here.


I printed out a black and white image on plain white card stock. Using a circle cutter, I cut a 4 inch circle and folded the fortune cookies. I hand wrote fortunes on black paper with a gel pen and inserted them into the cookies.

Check back tomorrow for more black and white New Year’s Eve party ideas.

  13. What a cute idea! And SO much easier to make than real fortune cookies! I'm featuring a New Year's centerpiece this week and I think it would be great to change out my blue with your black & white for a fun centerpiece to go with your theme. Stopping by from Today's Creative.
