DIY Love-Filled Felt Fortune Cookies!

Welcome to the ninth day of the series! Yesterday, Heather showed you how to make some totally amazing lip balm using Koolaid!  I am dying to try it! If you missed any projects, you can view them on my blog here and on Heather's blog here.

Before I get started, I also wanted to say that today is the birthday of the Wonder Forest shop!  It was one year ago today that I decided to open up an Etsy shop and get the ball rolling! Because of that, I am offering 15% off in my NEW shop until Feb 1st with code "BDAY"! <3 Thank you for all of your support and love over the course of this very eventful year!!

Alright on with it! Today is all about the couples! I have to admit to borrowing this idea from Martha, but I substituted some things... that's enough to create my own DIY out of it right? ;)

We're going to make some super cute felt fortune cookies! This is so easy and you can get as innocent or as risky as you want with the fortunes ;)


First you will need the following supplies:
  • Felt
  • Your own fortunes printed on paper
  • Twist ties or a thin wire
  • Glue gun or fabric/tacky glue
  • Ribbon

First you need to cut your felt into circles. My circles were about 3.5" in diameter.


Then, grab a twist tie (cut to size if needed) and glue it onto the center of your circle. I found that using 2 twist ties was a little better, but this will depend on how strong the wires are.


Grab a matching ribbon and glue it on top of the twist tie to hide all of it's ugliness.


Pop your fortune inside!


Pinch the top of your cookie together...


... Then bend it from the bottom wires into that classic fortune cookie shape.


Give them to your lover and watch him open up all his love-filled fortunes! I'd love to know what you thought of this tutorial! What are some cute fortunes others could put inside their cookies?

Like my nails? That tutorial is here!
