Need a cute little gift for someone? This is perfect, and it’s a whole lot easier than you may think. I’ve made and given several of these already. One day I was running late (imagine that!) and made 8 of these in about 15 minutes.
Here’s what I made:
Here’s how I did it:
Cut one piece of Garden Green card stock to 2″ x 10″. Score on the long side at 3-1/4″, 6-1/2″, and 9-3/4″. Score on the short side at 1″. Fold it in half to 1″ x 10″ and glue to keep it closed. Fold all score lines to form a triangle. Glue the 1/2″ area at one end to the inside of the other end.
Cut one piece of Garden Green CS to 2″ x 11″. Score on the long side every 1″ for the full length. Turn a quarter turn and cut to create two 1″ x 11″ strips. Cut one of those strips into two pieces: 4″ and 7″. Fold all three pieces like this: two valleys then two mountains, then repeat to the end of each piece. Insert them into the triangle, the longest at the bottom, the smallest at the top, and the middle one in the middle. Insert one Hershey’s Kiss into each little triangle – 9 pieces. I used the almond ones with gold wrappers, but you can use any color. I think a combination of red, green, and silver would look very festive.
Note: If you want, you can glue all the pieces inside the tree, but the pressure from the kisses and the ribbon keep it together just fine.
Wrap ribbon around the perimeter of the triangle and tie at the top. I like to use a little Fast Fuse to hold it in place. For these examples, I usedReal Red 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon on some, and Cherry Cobbler Ribbon from the Silky Taffeta 3/8″ Ribbon Combo Pack on the others.
Cut one piece of Chocolate Chip CS to 2″ x 5-3/4″. Score on the long side at 1″, 2-3/8″, 3-3/8″, and 4-3/4″. Score on the short side at 1″. Fold in half to 1″ x 5-3/4″ and glue to keep it closed. Fold all score lines to form a rectangle. Glue the two end areas together. Insert two Hershey Nuggets. I used two of the gold wrapped ones from an assorted bag.
Adhere the Chocolate Chip base to the Garden Green tree.
