A chocolate bouquet on the market is always sold on hundreds of dollars. But actually speaking, it’s not difficult to make one personally. Even males can do it based on below DIY steps. So, the coming Valentine’s Day won’t become a burden for your wallet from now on. To express your gratitude and love for anybody you want, take action now.
Required materials include chocolate, packing paper, plastic sticks, trays, scotch tape and ribbons.
Step 1: Choose the chocolate according to your favor. Generally speaking, chocolate is wrapped by gold paper, seeming more exquisite and romantic. Here, chocolate with gold paper and a wood-like chassis is picked out.
Step 2: Put the chocolate onto the plastic trays. Connect the tray with the stick.
Step 3: To enhance the romantic sense, transparent packing paper in lilac is the most frequently used on a bouquet for the Valentine’s Day. Wrap the chocolate with the packing paper now.
Step 4: Fix the packing paper by scotch tapes.
Step 5: After being wrapped, the chocolate looks like this (like a lollipop).
Step 6: Pink packing paper is used to make the flower petals. Fold it to be a conical shape.
Step 7: Scotch tape is also needed to glue the edge of each petal.
Step 8: Paste the petal to the finished lollipop. Here, scotch is more convenient than glue since the petal is pointed. Glue may make the petal deform.
Step 9: Now, fold the outside wrapping paper. Here, lilac packing paper is used too. But different with above transparent one, this is much thicker and not transparent.
Step 10: Paste the outside wrapping paper onto the cluster of chocolate. The bouquet has been finished. Seeming exquisite, it must be a great gift for the romantic festival without asking you to break the wallet.
