We are making these at enrichment next month, and I had to make the samples. I wouldn't mind making these for friends or family. These came from the Martha Stewart Living magazine, but as usual, the real thing doesn't work quite as planned. We'd planned on putting Hershey's kisses in these, but they ended up being too soft to hold the weight of the candy. They hold a fortune just fine, but even conversation hearts fell out the sides. Maybe a thicker weight felt would hold the candies better?Anyway, here's the pictures and directions....
You will need
a. 4-4 1/2 inch bowl
b. a piece of felt
c. tacky glue
d. floral wire
e. ribbon to match the felt.
Lay the felt out flat and trace 3-5 circles (depending on size of bowl) with the bowl on the felt. Cut out.
and glue onto the felt.
Cover the glue with a piece of ribbon that is just long enough.
Let dry for 30 min.
and then bend the wire in the felt over the edge of the bowl.
open a flap of the felt and insert a fortune.
Then readjust the felt to resemble a fortune cookie.
A good place I found for fortune ideas is here. They also have a recipe, however I haven't tried theirs.
