Hershey Kiss Bouquet

I've been working on this project for literally the past two weeks!  In an attempt to make the perfect Hershey Kiss flower, my trash cans are over flowing, there is paper everywhere, and a lot of empty candy wrappers floating around!  

So, I had this idea in my head, but unfortunately it didn't translate well into the finished  product, hence why it took so long!

Using my Cricut, I cut out some flowers.  They are two different sizes and attached with a pop up dot in the middle.  Then, I hot glued a lollipop stick to the back.  Once that was dried, I attached the Hershey Kiss to the center of the flower.  I tied a piece of wired ribbon on to each of the sticks. 

Then, I made a box with my Scor-Pal.  Originally, I had wanted a small flower pot for my flowers.  I searched high and low for some small plastic flower pots, but I could only find the orange clay ones, and I was worried them breaking.  Also, I wasn't too sure that my flowers would match.  So, I just made my own.  I stuck a piece of floral foam in the box and covered it with some paper shred.  I stuck my flowers into the foam.

I made a pick for my floral arrangement with my favorite Dandelion Designs stamps.

Stamps:  Dandelion Designs - Easter Bunny & Sentiment
Paper:  Recollections, Simple Stories
Ink:  Memento, Versafine
Misc:  Cricut Plantin School Book Cartridge, Scor-Pal, My Favorite Things Scallop Border and Bows Die-Namics, floral foam, paper shred, Hershey Kisses, wood skewer, pop up dots, wired ribbon, paper punches, Nestabilities, hot glue gun, lollipop sticks

Thanks for stopping by,
