Fortune Cookie Gift Made Using Felt

This project idea came to me whilst I was preparing gifts for my friends for Christmas. Make fortune cookies using felt and hide gifts within them for a fun creative idea!

Fortune Cookie Gift Made Using Felt

What you need

Cream Colored Felt
Craft Glue
Chinese Take Out Box
Chinese Token or trinket for decoration


I filled my Felt fortune cookies with earrings but you could fill them with any sort of small item, or even a written token of love or something similar.

Start by cutting your circle out for your fortune cookie. My circle was about 2 inch (5 cm) in size. But your cookie can be as big or small as you need it to be.


Run glue along cut felt circle

Run a bead of glue around the edge of the circle and press it into half, leaving the ends open.

Put your item inside the open ends and close it up.

Close the felt circle

Place your finger into the middle and bend the cookie around your finger giving it the traditional fortune cookie shape.

Hide the gift inside the fortune cookie
