Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday full of love and candy – two of my favorite things! I LOVE crafting with the kids, so this year for Valentine’s Day we have created these quick and easy Felt Fortune Cookies for their classmates – full of funny fortunes and chocolate kisses! What’s not to love?!?!
NOTE: If making these with kids younger than 8 years old, I recommend using chenille stems rather than wire.
1. cut a 4 1/2-inch-diameter circle from a piece of felt. Cut a piece of matching ribbon slightly shorter than 4 1/2 inches. Using wire cutters, cut a piece of wire slightly shorter than the length of ribbon.
2. Using glue gun affix the wire to the middle of the felt circle. Glue ribbon on top, covering the wire.
3. Place fortune in center of cookies along the ribbon line. Fold the felt circle in half, using the wire as a guide, so ribbon is inside cookie. Next, angle the sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point and forming a fortune-cookie shape, as shown.
4. 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.
