This is a Martha Stewart project. The link to it can be found here. I didn't do it exactly as she suggested. I actually got ideas from a couple of her commenters.
pipe cleaners or wire
First of all, I thought her suggested circle size of 4-1/2" was too small. I made a circle (just under 5") on my computer and printed it onto card stock. I used it as a pattern for my felt circles.
Martha suggested wire to place across the middle. I used a pipe cleaner which I trimmed with a wire cutter.
I also used hot glue because it's faster. Don't burn your fingers.
Print or write out a fortune to place in the cookie. I googled funny one-liners and printed some of those. One of my favorites was, "The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it." Another one was, "Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad." Who doesn't love a little after dinner sarcasm?
You can also place candy inside, which I found to be quite tedious. Maybe a smaller piece of candy would work better. The Hershey Kiss did work, but I had to fanagle with it a lot.
Be careful to grasp the candy as you pinch the edges together:
Then fold at the pipe cleaner:
This was an arduous project, but I did finally get the hang of it, and I will definitely do it again. These would be fun for other occasions as well.
