September 13th is Fortune Cookie Day. Who knew!?! Celebrate any event with this re-usable, easy-to-transport, or even mail-able (packed up in a Chinese food take-out container) felt garland. In place of strips of decorative paper, you could even insert personalized fortunes – for example, “You will always be surrounded by those who love you.” Perfect for a baby shower, bridal shower or engagement party.
