Bouquet of Flower Kisses
Handmade flowers that have a surprise center - Hershey's Kisses.
I used the Cricut cartridge Pagoda Passion to cut the flowers at 2.95 inches, I then sprayed the flowers with Adirondack Color wash sprays by Tim Hotz and my own "glimmer mist" which is acrylic floor wax and pearl ex in a spray bottle. The rest of the items I already had in my stash to complete this Bouquet of Flower Kisses, which became a birthday present for my mother. Which she just loved.. lol... Very easy to make.
What you will need:
6 colors of cardstock I used three shades of pink and three shades of purple
bamboo skewers Depending on the size of vase you have 10 to 16 skewers
Hot glue gun
Tissue paper that matches the cardstock for your flowers
Green tissue paper
Hershey's Kisses (I used two bags to fill the vase and these were the Easter Holiday Kisses so there were pretty purple and pink wrappers)
Adirondack Color wash sprays (or other type of color sprays)
Your version of a Glimmer Mist
This was fun and quick to make once I had all the materials laid out... Oh and you will stab some of the kisses if you jam the skewers in really hard so go gently I just warned my mom that the candy was all wrapped when I started and the vase was clean and I did the damage so she could still eat the candy lol.. I think it would be a wonderful Mothers day gift. Or for a new mother in a hospital after giving birth. For a friend that can't have real flowers because of allergies.. So don't limit yourself look at candy in a different way, maybe a different candy could be the center...
I hope that this inspires you to create one for someone you love... Please feel free to ask questions. I love sharing what knowledge I have.. :)
Have a blessed day.
