Make Fortune Cookie Invitations

High School Arts & crafts Activities: Make Fortune Cookie Invitations

What You Need:

  • Yellow felt
  • Circular pattern, roughly 5 inches in diameter
  • Fine felt tip marker
  • Scissors
  • Yellow thread
  • Sewing needle
  • White paper

What You Do:

  1. Have your teen trace the circular pattern onto the felt and then cut the felt circle out.  
  2. Your child should then fold the felt circle in half and sew two stitches at the top of the arc. Knot and cut off the extra thread. (The felt shape should look something like a taco shell.)
  3. Have your teen push the felt into the middle of the folded area, making the cookie shape puff along this base line. Pushing the corners towards each other, your teen will construct a fortune cookie shape.
  4. Ask your child to make two more stitches where the sides of the cookie touch. Knot and cut off the excess thread.
  5. Now it's time to write the invitation! There isn’t room for a large sheet of paper in each cookie so your teen will have to keep it short. Prompt your child's choice of wording with a few questions. What is the person invited to? “You are invited to Hannah’s birthday party.” When is it? “Noon on 1/15/2010.” Where is it? “At her home, 1625 First Street. RSVP.” 
  6. Cut out long narrow strips of paper and have your teen write out the invitations, fold the paper in half, and slip it into the cookie. All that’s left is to deliver the invitations and have a good time!
