About: ...after 30 years of becoming corporately numb, my dreams of not working (for pay) and instead creating with my hands has become a reality. Life is grand!

Intro: Kisses Roses

Creativity + Chocolate Kisses = Edible Flowers!

A simple project that will bring a smile to the recipient..

Step 1: Gather Materials

- Hersheys kisses
- red plastic wrap cut into 5" x 5" squares
- green plastic wrap cut into 5" x 5" squares, then cut diagonally
- aluminum foil cut into 5" x 5" squares
- bamboo skewers
- florist tape

Step 2: Form the Rose Bud

Wrap the foil sheet around two Hershey kisses.

Wrap red plastic around the foil kisses, twisting together tightly.

Step 3: Add a Stem and Leaf

Wrap florest tape around the base of the rosebud, twisting tightly one roatation, then around the entire length of a bamboo skewer.

Crimp a piece of the green plastic and using florist tape, attach it at the point the rosebud meets the stem. Feel free to add more green leaves on to the stem if filler is needed.

Step 4: Arrange and Deliver

Find a vase or a long box and deliver as if they were freshly cut.

Unwrap and enjoy!

    Back in middle school I had a teacher who had us make these and tell us to give them to our favorite teacher. I gave it to her and she kept it for the entire time I was there. I don't know about after I left. I had made a second one and I gave it to my mother. She told her friend about them and I ended up making enough for a collection of wedding centerpieces.

    Made them with my twins and they had so much fun. Thanks for a thoughtful, creative and inexpensive idea to spread the love.

    This looks like a great V-D gift idea for a friend/neighbor/co-worker who you like but not in a romantic way.
