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)
Paper & pen
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!
