felt fortunes

For a holiday that’s all about the warm fuzzies, Valentines Day causes complete opposite reactions. On one hand, there are people who think the holiday is pointless and if you’re not in looovveee, you feel like a horrible human. On the other hand, some plaster hearts everywhere and plan extravagantly for the day. I enjoy the holiday purely for writing Valentines, eating chocolate, and decorating with pink.

The following combines all three of my favorite Feb. 14th traditions: felt fortune cookie shaped Valentines filled with fortunes and candy! With a few tweaks from Martha Stewart’s instructions, they’re easy and perfect for the holiday.

Lessons Learned:
-Buy the non-stiff felt at the craft store
-Sew the edges instead of gluing, waiting for the glue to set is a pain
-The ribbon to cover the twistie tie is pretty, but an uneeded step. You can barely see it when the felt fortunes are complete
