Introduction: Fuzzy Fortune Cookies

Who doesn't love fortune cookies? No one. Everyone loves fortune cookies! You crack them open, eat them and read your fortune, cool! But after you eat it, you wish you had more :( Wouldn't it be awesome if you had a fortune cookie that never disappeared? Hallelujah, enter the Felt Fortune Cookie. They're easy to make, affordable, awesome looking and make great valentines! And unlike real fortune cookies, you get to choose what fortunes go inside. Surprise a loved one with a creative cookie that never gets old!

Step 1: Materials

To make this treat you'll need Felt (mine is red, you can use any color) Scissors Craft glue Small wire Paper & pen A workspace Patience (;

Step 2: Forming the Cookie

Cut out a circle of felt, mine measured a diameter of 3 3/8 inches.

Step 3: Adding the Wire

Cut a piece of wire a bit shorter than the actual circle, and make sure it's straight. Glue it down the center and cut out another thin strip of felt, and glue it over the wire. The extra felt makes it look nicer when it's opened. Allow about an hour to dry! Note: we're adding this wire so that when we fold the cookie up it will keep it in shape.

Step 4: Goodies!

Cut out a little strip of paper and write your message down on it. There should be some spare room, so "fill" free to add some candy! You see what I did there? (-: Folding instructions: lay paper in the middle of the circle, and fold the circle in half over the paper. Then fold it again, but not in half, fold it into a Pacman looking shape. Then if you need to adjust the flaps so everything is rounded. That's it!

Step 5: Share Them

There you go! Make a ton and give them to your valentines/friends/family. They'll love it, these are super cool. Happy valentines day everyone!

Cool! I love that it's simple, but very unique, and whoever gets it can reuse it. :)

I have done this before! I did it for Valentines day for my class- it was so ironic the fortunes matched with everyone's personality, and I just handed them out random! Thanks for the instructable (even though I WAS GOING TO MAKE IT!!!! :P)!

how does the edges keep together??

Not sure what you mean by that broski, but if what you're talking about is what I'm thinking let me give you an example: In origami certain folds make the paper keep a certain shape. The same is with this, with the aid of wire, the felt keeps its shape. Hope that helps. (=

Chinese New Year begins Feb.10th, so this is also rather appropriate given Valentine's Day is just a few days after.

So, does the fold hold it closed?

The wire holds it closed after it is folded, sort of like a spine, and it helps keep it's shape. (-:
