chocolate bouquet for Mother's Day

this is what I made for my mum for Mother's Day. It contains 10 Ferror Roche chocolates. I used ballo0n sticks to hold them all together (and trusty hot glue gun!!).

The Real Red flower is the Stampin' Up! scallop circle die with about an inch cut down between each scallop to create the petals. Hot glue the chocolate on the top, wrap the petals around it then hot glue the flower to the top of the balloon stick.
Then to hide the round part of the balloon stick I used Old Olive card punched out of the largest scallop circle punch Stampin' Up! in New Zealand has. I snipped in between the scallops on that too, I also punched a hole in the middle for where the stem of the balloon stick. To enable it to slightly cave I sniped one of the petals I had created on the Old Olive scallop circle right to the center hole - this created the cone as two petals meet as shown in the last photo. This of cause was hot glued on to the base of the balloon stick base.

I wrapped each flower in a small piece of clear cellophane then wrapped the whole bouquet in a clear cellophane that had gold stars on it. Finishing with a bow and ribbons the bouquet is ready for my mum. Oh yes I did make a greeting which I popped into the bouquet too.

I worked out that this bouquet cost less than $10 to make and saw similar ones in the Mall which were selling for $45!!! So I am very pleased with my effort - just don't tell my mum I only spent less than $10 on her for Mother's Day! lol

Tomorrow I will show you the card I made for her.
