Felt Fortune Cookies

Here's a fun craft that looks almost good enough to eat.  In fact, my son picked one up before he realized it was felt!  Here is what you will need...

  • Craft Felt (tan or color of your choice)
  • "Glue Dots" or a hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • White paper

Cut a circle of felt approximately 4 1/2" in diameter.  (A large can works well as a template.)

Fold the felt circle in half like a taco.

Push in on the center bottom of the taco as you bring the corners toward each other as shown.

Keep bringing the two sides together as you encourage the top of the "taco" to turn down.  It will start to look like a fortune cookie.

Attach the two sides that you pinched together with a "Glue Dot" or a dab of hot glue.

Cut a strip of paper about 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" long.  Write a fortune on the strip of paper and slip it into one side of the cookie.  Now make a batch for someone you love.
