Valentine’s Day Craft: Felt Valentines Fortune Cookie

Posted on Jan 22 2013 - 7:28am by CharleyC

Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays since becoming a mom. I love to surprise them on the days up to Valentine’s Day with fun crafts, little treats and things they just don’t expect. This craft would be perfect for popping a little note into a lunch box or backpack. I haven’t figured out how to get a small candy to stick inside of them yet, but I’m working on it! I adapted this project from Martha Stewart for ease, I think doing it with the changes I made makes it a little simpler than the instructions on their website.

Valentine Day Craft :

  • Felt
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Pipe cleaners to match your felt
  • Pen and paper
It is just takes a few minutes to make these up and other than the hot glue, your kids can help to make them. You need to cut several 4 inch circles out of your color felt of choice.
Cut a pipe cleaner a little shorter than the width of your circle and hot glue it on. You will use a pipe cleaner that matches your felt, and not a brown one, but I used it here so you could see what I was doing a little better.
Tuck in your note.
Pinch the pipe cleaner in the middle and pull the ends together to make a fortune cookie shape, like so.
That’s all there is to this valentines day craft! A word of warning: they are so fun to make it gets a little addicting. I’m looking forward to sending some of these off in my husband’s lunch. These would be so cute for┬ákids to pass out for their Valentine’s parties instead of those little paper cards. So cute and sweet. I just love working with felt and this is another great craft that uses felt in a fun way.
