Felt Fortune Cookies for Chinese New Year!

I love fortune cookies!  These colorful felt fortune cookies are easy to make and take less than 15 minutes.  They are perfect reusable play food toys.  Chinese New Year is Feb 5, so this is the perfect craft to ring in the new year!  Make a bunch of brightly colored fortune cookies for imaginative play, as a decoration, or string them up on a garland!
This craft is part of Craft Lightning: Obsure Holidays!



Chinese New Year isn't really an obscure holiday, but it's what I decided to celebrate today!  I like to celebrate any chance I get!
Supplies Needed:
4" circles of colored felt
3" strips of twill tape or ribbon
3.5" of pipecleaner
Hot Glue/Gun
Use a big mug or plate that is 4 inches across and trace the circle onto the felt with a pencil.
Cut the pipecleaner to fit inside each felt circle.
Just like this picture below.  Cut the twill tape or ribbon to 3 inches.
Squeeze a line of hot glue across the felt circle.
Then place the pipecleaner in the glue.
Use a marker to write a fortune on the twill tape or ribbon.
Place the fortune on the felt circle.
Fold the felt in half.
Push and pinch the center in.  The pipecleaner will hold the shape and make the fortune cookie reusable.
Plus it looks adorable!  Perfect for a centerpiece or filling up a take-out box.
Repeat for each fortune cookie!  This could make a fun game too--with a winning fortune!
