Valentines Day roses

(**NOTE: The sketch challenge deadline will be Wednesday, Jan. 9th. Thank you!)

Here is a simple treat you can make for your Valentine next month.

These are the supplies you will need: Floral stems, floral tape, hershey kisses, leaves, foil tissue and wire cutters.

Cut the foil tissue into squares approx. 5 X 5. Take two kisses with bottoms together and wrap in square.

Twist the foil to help hold in the kisses and begin wrapping with floral tape to secure. Once you've wrapped tape around several times add your stem.
Continue wrapping with floral tape until you can no longer see the foil, add your leaf and wrap the rest of the way down the stem.

You can do a small bundle or fill a vase
