I thought I am going to stop making Valentine’s project 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 🙂
Felt Valentine Fortune Cookies
1. Felts, red/pink
2. Ribbon, 1/4″
3. Floral wire, gauge #22 or 24
4. Paper, 2 letter size (8 1/2″ x 11″)
5. Some small candies treats, for example, Hershey’s Kisses
1. Tacky Glue / White PVA Glue / Mod Podge
4. Craft Knife
6. Cutting Mat
7. Wire cutter
Download the pattern and love notes, print them out.
Gather and prepare the materials.
Cut felt according to the pattern.
Cut the floral wires and ribbons slight shorter than the width of the felt.
Cut love notes into strips with ruler and craft knife on a cutting mat.
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.
