Chocolate and flowers, a winning combination at any wedding celebration!

To create the rose favors, start by placing two Hershey kisses back to back with the pointed ends out.
Cut a square of red cello large enough to cover both kisses. Wrap it over the chocolates and twist together the ends at the bottom.
Insert a bamboo skewer into the twisted red cello ends. I put the flat end of the skewer up into the chocolate and left the pointed end down. Starting at the top, wrap green florist tape around the entire skewer.
To create the leaves, punch or die cut leaves from patterned paper. You will need two leaf punches for each leaf, and I used two finished leaves for each favor. Cut 3 inch lengths of florist wire for the center of the leaves.
Using the Glue Arts Glue Gun, apply a small bead of glue to the center of a leaf. Press the florist wire into the glue. Apply another small bead of glue to a second leaf and adhere it on top.
Repeat this process until you have enough leaves for your centerpiece.
Using more florist tape to hide the wires, attach leaves to the wrapped bamboo skewers.
Now repeat the process for each favor.
Cover the unfinished wooden box with patterned paper using the Glue Glider Pro with High Tac Adhesive. Wrap the top with a scalloped cardstock border sticker, a ruffled strip of patterned paper, and trim using the Glue Arts Ribbon Adhesive. The super sticky tack of the Ribbon Adhesive worked perfectly for applying the heavy ruffled trim, too.

Using the Glue Arts Glue Gun, adhere a scalloped cardstock sticker to the center of the box. Embellish with buttons attached with Extreme Adhesive Squares, a layered bow, and a final die cut flower.

Fill the box with florist foam and poke the pointed rose favors into the foam. Cover the top of the foam with reindeer moss.
