Felt Fortune Cookies

Creating these felt fortune cookies is as easy as it gets and very little materials are needed. Here is how to do it:

1. Find something circular that is about 4 inches in diameter.

2. Trace your circle onto some felt.

3. Cut your circle out. (Yes, I took pictures of literally every step in this tutorial!)

4. Cut a ribbon just shorter than 4 inches and a piece of wire just shorter than that. Don’t forget to burn your edges of the ribbon to keep it from fraying.

5. Put a strip of hot glue on the center of your felt and place wire over the glue.

6. Cover wire with ribbon while the glue is still hot.

7. Fold the circle in half.

8. Bend the edges together.

 And you’re fortune cookies are made!

  (I repeated all the steps and made pink ones too!)


 Next was the hardest part- filling them with “coupon”-ish items.

I went online to quite a few horoscope sites to find wording, since I am not astrology savvy.

I made the following:

It is written in the stars. You will soon be served breakfast in bed.

The planets are aligned and their energies will present you with the chance to receive a foot massage from your wife.

One who loves you will soon be serving your favorite dinner.

Lady Luck is on your side and the back rub you have been wanting will finally happen this week.

Tap into the extra ounce of energy you will receive from Jupiter this month and get ready for a fun date planned by your wife.

Pisces has granted Taurus one chance to get out of changing a diaper.

Super cheesy, but I needed something “fortune cookie sounding”!

I printed these on small strips of paper and stuffed them inside each cookie.

Lastly, I put all the cookies in a Chinese Takeout Box ($1.50 @ Hobby Lobby)

    These are so great! I made them last year for my son's class for his Valentine's. I used a pipe cleaner instead of the wire and filled them with Hershey's Kisses!

    I love the fortune cookie idea this year! Yours turned out darling! I saw on Skip To My Lou a link to Alpha mom on how to make your own cookies. The recipe is adapted from Paula Deen. The kids and I are going to make these for teachers, bus drivers, etc. with personalized messages. Such a fun idea!
