Creating these felt fortune cookies is as easy as it gets and very little materials are needed. Here is how to do it:
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.
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)
And it is ready to be given to my sweetheart on VDay!
