I saw Brassy Apple’s fortune cookie via Craftzine and wanted to try it to see if it could serve as a card for a gift. I think it can, assuming the person knows to look inside for his fortune (the card’s message).
I may have had one of two problems 1) I made mine a little too big. She provides a pattern, but I just used a CD. Next time I’m going to try something smaller than that, but bigger than a soup can. Or maybe print off her pattern, but I hate to be wasteful if I can just trace a found object. 2) I did not master step 10, the fluffing and shaping technique that she has. Or maybe I need to make more since it looks a little odd by itself.
Try, try again!
