Felt Thanksgiving Fortune Cookies DIY
With Thanksgiving only a week away, I thought I would post this fun tutorial that Taylor and I came up with- Felt Thanksgiving Fortune Cookies!
You could use these simply as decorations, or a neat thing to do would be to have everyone write what they are thankful for, and put in the cookies, and then have everyone open them up later...
Bits of white paper, or 1/4" twill ribbon
Needle and thread
1. Cut out 4 inch circles out of tan felt.
2. Write out thankful thoughts and wishes on strips of paper.
3. Position and sew on snaps. The first should be on the front, the two parts of it opposite of each other, while the second snap goes on the back, in the other direction. Basically, one snap set goes vertically, the other horizontally.
4. Place in fortunes, fold in half, snap the first snap, and then pull the ends together towards the middle, and snap closed.
