Make fortune cookies using felt and hide gifts within them for a fun creative idea!
What you need
Cream Colored Felt
Chinese Take Out Box
Chinese Token or trinket for decoration
I filled my Felt fortune cookies with earrings but you could fill them with any sort of small item, or even a written token of love or something similar.
Start by cutting your circle out for your fortune cookie. My circle was about 2 inch (5 cm) in size. But your cookie can be as big or small as you need it to be.
Run glue along cut felt circle
Run a bead of glue around the edge of the circle and press it into half, leaving the ends open.
Put your item inside the open ends and close it up.
Close up the circle
Place your finger into the middle and bend the cookie around your finger giving it the traditional fortune cookie shape.
Hide a gift!
Make the Fortune Cookie shape
To finish the cookies, place them into a Chinese take away box and decorate it up.
