This weekend I went to the craft store Ben Franklin and saw this cute idea. Gumballs with a Hershey’s Kiss on top. Hence, ‘Blow Me A Kiss’! Ben Franklin actually made them in stand up plastic tubes. But, since they are .99 cents each, I thought they would be cute in pretzel bags. And lucky for me I had a bunch left over!
Here is what you need…
Gumballs (Ben Franklin had LOTS of different colors!)
Pretzel Bags and Hershey’s kisses. I think I got all 75 of those pretzel bags at Walmart for like $2.99. Much better than .99 cents per plastic tube.
Layer your gumballs in your bag. You can choose how many. I didn’t fill them to the top, so I cut off any extra plastic bag that was hanging over. The bags are a little big, so push your gumballs to one side. This picture doesn’t do a very good job of showing you, but you get the idea.
Then put a piece of tap on the back where I folded it.
Add a cute ribbon, or use the silver ties that come with the pretzel bags. Print out our tags and attach them to the ribbon or tie.
So cute right?
My second grader is very excited to give them to her friends. But, my fifth grader said, ‘Mom, I can’t give those to the BOYS!’ :)

Shortly after I posted this I found this cute blog that made them with the plastic tubes!
