I thought I was going to stop making Valentine’s projects for this year as it is just a few days away, but when I saw Martha Stewart’s Felt Fortune Cookies in her book: Martha Stewart’s Handmade Holiday Crafts: 225 Inspired Projects for Year-Round Celebrations and her website, I couldn’t stop myself for not adapting the method and make them into heart-shaped valentine fortune cookies.
The tutorial is easy and the process is quick to make. What really inspired me is that we can slip some candies into the felt cookies…. simply a marvelous idea for some sweat treats for your loved ones or for your valentine guests. For your convenience, I have also prepared 20 love note printables for you to download and print.
Oh… I almost forgot to mention this, you can always make these heart-shaped fortune cookies for any occasion as a little gift for your guest, particularly, as a door gift in a wedding reception 🙂

Glue the floral wire to the center of the felt.
Glue a piece of ribbon to cover the floral wire.
Repeat it to the rest of the felts.
Set aside for about 30 minutes to let the glue set and bond to the felt securely before continue the next step. But don’t leave it too dry or else it will get harden and unable to fold.
Place a love note on the felt and fold the felt into halve.
Press down the center while pushing the sides up and toward the center to form the fortune cookies shape.
Flip or peel the fortune cookies slightly and inserts some candies into it. Close back.

Thank you for the Valentine fortune cookie pattern. It will be a hit with my family and the children I know. I enjoy reading about The Quilt Show and learn many many things. Alex helped me to learn to applique. Many thanks.
