Melt Chocolate Chips and Dip Cookies
Pour white chocolate chips into a microwave-safe container and place in microwave. Using a low power setting, melt chocolate chips, stirring frequently. Note: Alternatively, you can use a double-boiler to melt the white chocolate chips. Holding one end, dip a fortune cookie into chocolate and place on wax paper (Image 1). While chocolate is still wet, press candy hearts onto chocolate (Image 2). Continue dipping cookies until you have enough to fill box (Image 3).
Create Felt Heart and Arrow
Fold a small piece of paper (or Post-It note) in half then draw half of a heart (Image 1). Tip: Using a Post-It note allows you to create a pattern that will stick to the felt when tracing. On two more folded pieces of paper, draw half of the tip and tail (fletching) of an arrow (Image 2). Cut these out to create templates.
Cut Out Felt Pieces
Unfold templates and trace one heart onto hot pink felt and two each of the arrow points and tails onto pale pink felt then cut out (Images 1 and 2).
