The Wise Words of Albus Dumbledore

I had seen this idea a long long time ago before origami stars were popular in my shop and came back to it just recently. Why not makes stars that act as inspiration to be a better person and better friend? Essentially, what this idea calls for is making an origami star into a fortune cookie.

Here are pictures to give you an idea. Bigger thicker stars that unravel with messages inside!
You can purchase them here with different themes as well. :) 

Here are my 20 quotes for my favorite Dumbledore quotes that are used in my Dumbledore Inspiration Star lot. He's all about honesty, friendship, bravery, and enjoying youth/life.
