Hershey Kiss Christmas Trees

This is such a super cute gift/favor, it takes very little cardstock, and very little time to make. It's pretty conservative on the candy budget, too, since you can fill about 8 trees from a standard 11oz bag of Kisses, and a 12oz bag of Nuggets will fill about 18 tree trunks! I followed Brenda Quintana's tutorial HERE, using her Timesaver Tips at the end, to cut for several at a time. Please make sure to leave a nice comment for Brenda if you use her tutorial :-)



The only thing I did differently, because I am such a cheapskate when it comes to ribbon, is that I simply popped a bow on top with a Mini Glue Dot. That only used about 12" of ribbon per tree, instead of the 20" per tree on the tutorial. Oh yeah, and I prefer using Tombow Multipurpose glue for everything, including the "tree trunk", so there's no Sticky Strip in my project. TIP: cut out one end square from the pieces that are folded in half (tree triangle & trunk) so you only have one layer of card stock folded over and adhered at the end. It just looks less bulky that way.

Stampin' Supplies: Garden Green cardstock, Chocolate Chip cardstock, Victoria Crochet Trim, Simply Scored tool, Paper Trimmer, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, (1) Mini Glue Dot for the bow.
