Valentine Fortune Cookies


This was so easy to make and the kids got a kick out of them.  (I originally saw this idea here.  You can follow their tutorial or see my lovely pictures and model below...)

Cut circle shape out of felt.  (Mine are about 3 1/2 inches in diameter.)


Next, cut a piece of floral wire shorter than the diameter of the circle and glue in place.  



I just glued another piece of felt to cover the wire.


Wait about 30 minutes until glue is dry.

Then, fold circle in half using wire as a guide.  


Next, pinch wire together to form fortune cookie shape. 


Stick notes or candy inside. 

Enjoy!
