Chocolate Roses For Mom

By Cindy Hopper

These little rose buds are a sweet gift for the mom that likes flowers and chocolate!

Supplies:

Hershey’s Kisses, wooden skewers, floral tape, glue dots, red cellophane

Fasten two kisses bottom to bottom with a glue dot.

Wrap a 5″ X 5″ piece of cellophane around the kisses.

Place wooden skewer in the middle of the cellophane next to the Hershey’s Kisses.

Starting just under the chocolate “bud” begin wrapping floral tape around the cellophane and all the way down the skewer. Slightly stretch the floral tape as you wrap.

The floral tape is sticky and should stay fastened but to make it really secure finish off with a dab of glue or a glue dot.

To make the roses extra special cut a leaf shape out of green card-stock and write a little note to mom! Fasten the leaves by wrapping them on the stem with a bit more floral tape.
