Last night we made fortune cookies for our pals. Tootie found the idea found the idea from Martha Stewart.
First you start with a square of felt.
Then use a cup as a circle template- the top for a big circle, the bottom for a slightly smaller circle.

Then cut out the circle.

Then glue the pipe cleaner down to the felt- this takes a while to fully dry, so you can cut out more circles in the meantime.
Or you can start on your message- you need to cut a piece of thin, white fabric.
Then write their fortunes or a message:
