Cut petals out of craft foam (Bob and his son used red and pink). Glue the petals together to make a flower. Use the photo as a guide.
Frost the fortune cookies with pink and red icing, or whatever colors you want. Let the icing set up and dry. (From Sherri: Instead of using real fortune cookies, consider making your own fortune cookies using craft foam and these directions.)
Cut a piece of chenille stem and 6-inches long. Wrap the chenille stem piece around the center of the fortune cookie and poke the ends through the center of the petal formation. You may may to poke a small hole with the tip of a scissors to get the chenille stem through. Twist the ends of this chenille stem around the center of a green chenille stem. Fold the green chenille stem in half to be the stem of the flower. Create leaves using even more green chenille stems.
