So this is long overdue. For Valentines day (being the ridiculous crafter that I am), I was completely inspired by Martha Stewart's felt fortune cookies idea. I followed her instructions (http://www.marthastewart.com/goodthings/felt-fortune-cookie), copied some silly fortunes from the internet and here is the end result. I made a trip to the dollar store for glue gun refills and bought a couple of bags of twisted Hershey's kisses and was left with a basket of these to hand out to all of my friends at school. Project pro: They make really unique and fun valentines. Project con:it was sort of time consuming (so I did it in front of the television while watching Angel- I recommend a gorgeous distraction Wink ) and on the way to school all of the kisses were falling out and the cookies all had to be fixed before handing them out. Everyone loved them and I made all my friends close their eyes and pick one randomly for added/geeky effects, would pretty much recommend this to anyone.

The originals (flawless styled by Martha and her staff):

they look great, I made some of these a few years ago as christmas presents (placed into chinese take away boxes) and filled them with costume earrings. Each friend got 3 pairs of earrings.  Was really well accepted.

Cool idea. I wonder if you could add your own fortunes.

I came across these as a Valentine's Day goodie for this year and after some extensive research, I think the "secret ingredient" Martha may have left out in her "recipe" is that the felt should be WOOL FELT or WOOL-BLEND FELT.
I haven't tackled the project yet, but I will post a follow-up, once I whip up a batch!

Oh, looks like everyone's getting these from me this year!  But using real wool?  I don't know about that...
