I wrote this tutorial a couple years ago (originally posted on the Ugly Baby and La Ru blog) after Epson sent us a LabelWorks Ribbon Printer to test out. One of the projects I came up with were Felt Fortune Cookies. This year, at Craftcation, I am teaching how to make Felt Fortune Cookies and Epson was kind enough to donate six printers for the class! I will be giving away a few at the end of my class and a few will be given away on the dearhandmadelife blog. I thought it would be fun to re-post this this tutorial since it is such a fun project.
- Epson LabelWorks Printable Ribbon Kit (and ribbon, color of your choice)
- Tan felt Brown
- Embroidery Floss (any color brown you choose)
- 2 pins
- 1 sewing needle
- 1 pen (such as a Sharpie)
- 1 mug or other circular object that you can use as a template
(If you don't have an Epson LabelWorks Printable Ribbon Kit, you can also write on paper and tuck it into the finished fortune cookie.)
These fortune cookies make great handmade party favors. They are also a neat way to tell that special someone how much you care for them. Set them out on the tables at your wedding or hide them around the city with secret messages hidden inside.
