No-Sew Felt Fortune Cookies

I had fun making felt fortune cookies for O and my niece for Valentine's Day. I saw lots of no-sew felt fortune cookie tutorials on various blogs, but for some reason I just couldn't make sense of them. I decided to just try to make one on my own, and it was so easy! Here's what I did...

First, I traced around a drinking glass and cut the circle out of felt. Then I put about an inch long strip of fabric glue on one side of the circle, folded the circle in half, and held it together with a clothes pin.

I waited a day before doing the next step. I folded the cookie and put a drop of glue on either side and held it together with a clothes pin. I hope the pictures make sense because I'm not explaining it well at all :) The clothes pins were stuck to a couple of cookies, but it worked well overall.

I cut small strips of paper and wrote messages on them. I slipped them into the cookies and was done! I think the girls will have fun writing their own messages and sharing the cookies with their family and friends :)

  2. How cute. Between your explaining and the pictures, it makes perfect sense. Thanks. I have so much felt left over from our felt board and the food I am attempting to make. It is great that these are just made with glue. Thanks.

  3. I'm feeling dense this morning - can you explain where on the cookie you put the glue? I'm having trouble picturing it. TY!

  4. Just wanted to let you know that I love reading your blog so much. I get so many great ideas - please never stop updating it! I have 2 daughters who are similar ages to yours. During these winter months with a newborn, I've retired our normal "going out" schedule and we are staying home and getting our craft on. :)
