    Chocolate Kiss Rose Buds

    Red and silver foil-wrapped kisses
    Clear plastic wrap
    Floral wire
    Green floral tape
    Artificial rose leaves

    Put a silver and a red kiss base to base. Center a piece of clear plastic wrap over the tip of the red one and stretch it tightly down over the kisses, gathering it at the tip of the silver kiss. Twist the end of a 12-inch piece of floral wire around the plastic wrap to secure it. Wind with green floral tape, beginning at the twisted wire, wrap up and around silver kiss then spiral back down covering wire stem and tucking in artificial rose leaves about an inch below the bud and one or two more spaced further down the stem. Continue wrapping stem wire until the entire length is covered.
