Trace four-inch diameter circles from red, light pink, medium pink, and park pink felt, with a marker. Use the Fiskar’s Circle Shape Template to make this a quick and easy task. Cut circles out with scissors, making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project.
Measure and cut pieces of craft wire slightly shorter than the four-inch diameter of the felt circles, using wire cutters. Cut lengths of matching satin ribbons approximately four inches long. Using a glue gun, affix the wires to the middle of the felt circles. Attach ribbons on top, covering up the wires. TIP: If crafting with younger kids, use color-coordinated chenille stems instead of wire and ribbon.
Measure and cut strips of white paper 1/2″ wide using a paper trimmer. With fun, bright colors of markers, hand-letter funny fortune cookie sayings on the strips of paper. If you prefer, download, and print out 20 Valentine’s Day Fortune Cookie Sayings from a FREE Printable file. Cut sayings apart with scissors or paper trimmer.
Place a paper fortune in the center of each fortune cookie from felt along the ribbon line. Fold the felt circle in half, using the wire as a guide, so the ribbon is inside the cookie. Next, angle the sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point and forming a fortune-cookie shape, as shown. The wire allows you to open and close the fortune cookies repeatedly.
Change up the colors of felt and create Fortune Cookies for any special occasion or holiday.
