Fabric Fortune Cookies
paper word strips
circle pattern – approx. 4-5 inches in diameter
STEP 2: Using your iron and following the manufacturer’s directions – apply the fusible fleece to the wrong side of your fabric using as large of a piece as you would like. (of fabric and fusible fleece depending on the number of circles you will be cutting out of that print)
STEP 4: Trace your pattern on the wrong side of your fused fabric using a fabric marker and cut out your circles. It’s always a good idea when making several to fuse all your fabrics, trace and cut them all at once instead of doing each step individually.
STEP 5: Cut a piece of wire just slightly shorter than the width of your circle- You can use floral wire or I just like to use whatever I have on hand that will work. For this project I used some 22 gauge wire that I had handy. Leave a small margin of space on each end. Glue in place with Craft Glue, hot glue, E6000. Again, I used what I had on hand. I believe there are several type of glue that will work.
STEP 6: Cut a piece of coordinating ribbon – match the color of the inside. In this case mine is white – and glue it over the top of the wire. Let dry flat for 10 – 30 mins. Depending on what type of glue you used.
STEP 7: While your glue is drying print off your word strips on whatever color paper you would like. Have fun with the font, size and you could even print off several different phrases depending on what the occasion is. Cut your strips.
STEP 10: This is what I call the fluff and shape step. To help your fortune cookie have a natural “round” shape slip your finger in the middle and push out the sides, make sure there is a good “crease” down the middle like the photo below. This will help shape your cookie too.
