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)!

I did this a couple years ago for valentines day for my class. Ironically, Some of the fortunes actually matched their personalaties! And I handed them out random...
LOL
Thanks for the 'Ible!
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. (=

Glad you like it!
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?
trans4mation (author)  Kiteman1 year ago
The wire holds it closed after it is folded, sort of like a spine, and it helps keep it's shape. (-:
