Happy Valentine’s Day!!! Or to some Single’s Awareness Day!!!
Whether one or the other, it’s a date dedicated to the expressing love for one’s friends, family and for many their partner in life! Some celebrate it through the giving of gifts of flowers or candy while others celebrate by giving that special someone a handmade valentine. The question is how can you combine all three into one?
Simple a hand-made candy rose bouquet!

First you need:
2 Candy Kisses
Colored Cellophane
Craft Foam
or Silk Flower Leaves
Floral Tape
A Wooden Skewer
Glue Gun

Use the glue gun to attach the candy Kisses together bottom to bottom.
Cut a 6 x 6 inch square of the colored cellophane. Place the skewer tip into one tip of the kisses.
Place the other tip of the kiss into the center of the cellophane and fold the cellophane around both kisses.
Twist the cellophane tightly around the skewer.
Holding the wooden skewer with the cellophane tightly twisted wrap floral tape tighly around the twisted cellophane, covering the cellophane.
Once the cellophane is wrapped, either using cut leaf forms or silk artificial leaves attach the leaves by gluing the base of the leaf to the wooden skewer.
Then wrap the floral tape around the base of the leaf and continue to wrap the floral tape tightly around the skewer winding the tape all the way around to the base of the stick
