DrewsUSAgirl has the right idea.
Here's step by step instructions.
1. Take a skewer (one of those giant toothpick things) and ram it gently into the top of a hersheys kiss until it is secure. 

2.  Balance another hershey kiss (perhaps a caramel filled one mmm) on top.

3.  With a square of non-transparent cellophane (I used red, but you can change the colour to your tastes or purposes - approx 3in x 3in. depending on how dexterous you are) cover the two hersheys kisses and wrap the excess cellophane against the skewer.

4. Take green gardening paper-like tape (sorry, I don't know the proper terms >.<) and wrap the skewer starting from the base of the "rose" all the way to the bottom of the skewer.  At some point along the wrapping, stop and insert one of those plastic leaves attached to a wire and wrap that in as well.

5. You can trim the skewer to any length you'd lke.

I apologize for my cryptic instructions...but have fun figuring it out! Once you get the hang of it you can make a whole load and they look gorgeous in bouquets!

This is a super easy to make yet fabulously lovely (and yummy) chocolate rose!

This is a little snail I made from french/spool knitting with a pipecleaner inside to give him shape.  You can make all sorts of critters with this style but the snail is a favourite of mine Smiley  He's also got a suction cup on his base so that he can, you know, stand hehe.

Go snail go!

That's an awesome idea!  My dogs would chew it off in seconds, but they aren't quite as civilized as yours must be.  Perhaps my cats would be better subjects for a fashion revamping.  The one with the pendant is rather worn because it's about a year old and I've been wearing it teehee. 

I'm on a hemp obsession trip as well and am thinking of making a super thick hemp belt... Should be exciting.
Before that I'm going to incorporate some shells into a necklace/bracelet combo Smiley

Two notebooks adorned with ribbon binding, textured cover, back cover, and inside covers.


A closeup on the two styles of ribbon binding and finishes I used:


The back cover of the "You missed camp!" notebook - (for my friend Kerry)
The name is written with ribbon:
