Mark Holes for Arrow
Lay chopstick across heart at an angle then mark where it will enter and exit (Image 1 and 2). Using scissors, make small slits at marks.
Assemble Heart and Arrow
Slide chopstick through holes in felt heart then glue together the arrow's double-sided tip and tail using a thick layer of felt glue or Aleene's Tacky Glue. Note: Because felt is so porous, regular craft glue simply soaks in and doesn't create a bond when gluing felt to felt. Tacky Glue, some fabric glues and felt glue are your best bets. Set aside and allow glue to thorougly dry which can take a few hours; you can speed up this process by placing the heart in a slightly warm oven.
Attach Heart to Takeout Box
Brush glue onto the backside of heart and place on takeout box. While gluing felt to felt requires a long dry time, the glue will set up quickly when attaching felt to cardboard. Finally, fill the box with dipped fortune cookies and give your valentine a sweet surprise.
