NOTE: If making these DIY Felt Fortune Cookies with kids younger than 8 years old, I recommend using chenille stems rather than wire and ribbon.
Here’s how to make DIY Fortune Cookies for Valentine’s Day:
Trace and cut a 4.5-inch diameter circle from a piece of Kunin Felt, making sure to cut inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project. I love fun shades of Pink and Red. Cut a piece of matching ribbon approximately 4.25″ inches. Using wire cutters, cut a piece of wire slightly shorter than the length of the ribbon.
TIP: When tracing shapes onto Kunin Felt, I love Aquarelleable Pencils by Stabilo. Use the black pencil on light-colored felt and the white pencil on the dark-colored felt.
Using a glue gun affix the wire to the middle of the felt circle. Glue ribbon on top, covering the wire.
Place a fortune in the center of each cookie 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.
Assemble the fortune cookies. Carefully peel back one flap of the felt cookie, and insert a paper fortune and a few candies. Fold the flap back over to close cookie around contents.
Quick and Easy Fortune Cookies made with Kunin Felt
Change up the colors of Felt and create Fortune Cookies for any special occasion or holiday. I’m thinking shades of white and cream for a Wedding Reception or maybe red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July. The possibilities are endless!
