To Good Fortune

 

fortune cookies

Here is a super cute idea from Martha Stewart.com. These are felt fortune cookies that hold a special not a a little treat for your guests. This would make a great favor idea. You can add a special thank you note to on the strip of paper and a special treat inside. These would be really cute for a shower, wedding, or even bachelorette party. Simply change the wording on the strips of paper to meet the needs of the event. For the wedding shower you could have the cookies filled with fun facts about the bride and groom. You could also make it into a game for a bachelorette party and fill the cookies with truth or dares. The options are unlimited. Be creative!

Felt Fortune Cookie How-To

1. Using fabric shears, cut a 4 1/2-inch-diameter circle from a piece of felt. Cut a piece of matching ribbon slightly shorter than 4 1/2 inches. Using wire cutters, cut a piece of floral wire slightly shorter than the length of ribbon.

 

2. Using craft glue, affix the wire to the middle of the felt circle. Glue ribbon on top, covering the wire. Let dry 30 minutes.

 

3. Fold the felt circle in half, using the wire as a guide, so ribbon is inside cookie. Next, angle the sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point and forming a fortune-cookie shape, as shown.

 

4. Assemble the fortune cookies. Carefully peel back one flap of the felt cookie, and insert a paper fortune and a few candies. Fold the flap back over to close cookie around contents.

    Cutting Board Shower Invitation

     

    cutting board

    Here is an ubber cute shower invitation idea from good old Martha Stewart! Take mini cutting boards and attach the invitations to them with ribbon. This is great to set the theme for a bride that needs her kitchen stocked or just loves to cook! Plus, it gives your guests an invitation they will defiantly keep. You can have invitations made, or make them yourself. Center each on a board; attach with double-sided tape. Wrap with ribbon, and mail in a small padded envelope. Mailing the wooden cutting boards could become quite pricey, so check that out first if you are on a budget. You can also find plastic cutting boards which are cheaper and do not weigh as much. These are typically white, so you may want to get a bolder color for the invitation if you go this route.
