Valentine Fortune Cookies

A fun simple Valentines craft is to make Valentine fortune cookies with Speed-Sew and felt fabric.

Want to make something for your honey that won’t cost a lot of money. I’m talking about making an impression on Valentine’s Day. Before you go out and buy just a regular boring gift that screams, “Sorry I’m so lame – I didn’t really try” I’m going to show you how to make your own gift that screams “Look how thoughtful I am – And I didn’t have to buy.”
So let me show you how to make romantic felt Valentine fortune cookies … and you won’t even need to sew it!
For this romantic and thoughtful gift all you’re going to need is a:

  • Pair of fabric shears (or just a good, strong pair of scissors)
  • Red felt
  • Floral wire
  • Speed-Sew

Step #1: Grab the scissors and cut a circle shape out of the felt. We want to make it about 4 inches in diameter.
Step #2: Next we cut a piece of the floral wire slightly shorter than the diameter of the circle.
Step #3: We then cut a strip of felt that’s the same length as the wire, to cover it.
Step #4: Now we’re going to use some Speed-Sew to glue the wire across the centre of the circle of felt.
Step #5: Put the strip of felt over the wire. We can add a bit of speed-sew to it if necessary.
Step #6: Now we wait about 30 minutes for the glue to completely dry. We can continue making more at this point and we can also write your note(s).
Step #7: When it’s completely dry pinch the wire together to form the fortune cookie shape by angling the sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point.
Step #8: Carefully peel back one flap of the felt cookie and put your note inside. You could also insert candy/candies. Fold the flap back over to close the cookie around the contents.
And there you have it – romantic Valentine fortune cookies. Guaranteed to keep you out of the dog house and turn your girlfriend or boyfriend into your spouse. Alright, maybe I can’t guarantee that, but what I can promise you that your chances of getting laid will increase significantly.
