Easy Mother's Day Spring Chocolate Bouquet

Flowers or chocolates--so hard to choose, so why not have both with this chocolate bouquet? Fabulous for Mother's Day, Teacher Appreciation. Or, as my friends know, I'm happy to receive chocolate for absolutely any (or no) occasion.
You'll need bamboo skewers, scrapbook paper, chocolates, and double stick tape.
You can buy green skewers in the floral department of craft stores, but I didn't have those, and I did have plain skewers and green paint, so I colored mine myself. It only took a few minutes.
I used a large flower cookie cutter to cut out flower shapes from cardstock, and attached them to the ends of skewers.
Nice sticky double stick tape was perfect for sticking on my chocolate petals to the paper flowers.
Arrange the chocolate flowers in an opaque container (to hide the floral foam keeping the flowers in place). Mmm, flowers never smelled so delicious.

      @Love Digging in the Dirt It's perfect for little kids, since you can use tape! My 4 year old loved helping me out! I'll bet you could get lots of pretty colored chocolates on clearance after Easter, too!

    Perfect for Mother's Day gifts from the little ones (and getting that Easter candy on sale after the holiday).
