Recap of Pen Pal Meeting 4.12.10


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.


Trace around the cup.


Then cut out the circle.


For that fortune cookie shape, you'll need the help of a little piece of pipe cleaner. Snip off a piece that fits in the middle of your circle, making sure neither side comes to the edge.


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:








Once the glue has dried, fold together like a taco then pull the edges down to meet each other, this will bend the pipe cleaner inside, into place.


Insert your message, make sure a little bit sticks out, then sew the top of the "cookie"


done!
