Chocolate and Flowers!

Linda, my design team lead at Scrap Tales, turned 60 last weekend and to celebrate I created a bucket of flowers filled with Hershey Kisses with a matching card of course! :)

The flowers are 1/2" strips of paper 6" long, I used 12 strips for each flower. 
With each strip, you fold the two ends together to overlap to form a loop then push down in the center (so there is a loop on each side) and stack them on top of each other until you have used six strips.  Once you have six strips, punch a hole in the center and but a brad through them.  Do the next six strips just the same and then add them to the first six.  Secure the brads, add some leafs and then hot glue them to small dowel rods.  Fluff out the flowers by pushing in the loops a little!
