Fortune Cookie inspired Crafts

Happy Thursday and on my Craft Table today is Fortune Cookie just in time for Chinese New Years and Valentine day gifts. Lisa

    Papercrafts : Fortune Cookies

    • Start by tracing the circles on the back side of the scrapbooking paper, and then carefully cutting them out. You should be able to fit approximately six circles per sheet of paper.
    • Choose one of the cut circles and gently fold it in half, but don’t crease it just yet…
    • Open the circle back up, and fold it in half again, this time in the opposite direction from the crease we just made. It’s a little hard to see here, but if you look closely, you’ll see that the crease we just made is running perpendicular to the new fold. Gently push the fold inward with your index finger while using your thumb and middle finger to bring both ends together.
    • Slip one of the fortunes in the opening on the side before bringing both ends completely together, and use an extra sticky glue dot near the fold to hold the fortune cookie’s shape

    Crafting supplies :

    • glue dots
    • basic crafting supplies
    • scrapbook paper (fabric)

    Valentine Craft Foam :

    • 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 felt market to write your fortune on twill tape. then place in middle and fold. Push and pinch the center in.  The pipecleaner will hold the shape and make the fortune cookie reusable.
