As I perused the candy aisle recently, the extra-large Hershey kisses caught my eye and I immediately thought it looked just like the top of a plastic drink bottle. When I got home I went to work creating Jumbo Chocolate Kiss Containers for Valentine's Day. Don't you just love it when a Craft Success happens? I know I do! I am so excited to be sharing today as part of the Creative Crafts Last Minute Valentine Crafts Edition, so scroll down to see all of the creative inspiration!

Here's how to create Cute Chocolate Kisses from Soda Bottles:
To begin the Jumbo Chocolate Kiss Containers, wash and dry the plastic drink bottles. Remove the lid and labels. Carefully cut the top section of the plastic drink bottle at the point where the tapering ends with scissors. My bottles are 2-liter and a 1-liter, but any size plastic drink bottles would work.
Repeat with additional plastic drink bottles. At this point, you will be able to wash and dry any additional residue from the inside of the bottles. Carefully trace the bottoms of the plastic drink bottles onto cardboard with the MONOTWIN Permanent Marker. Cut out the cardboard circles with scissors.
Flip the filled plastic drink bottle right side up on your work surface. Download and print the Jumbo Chocolate Kiss Container Sayings below ⇓ Select your favorite saying, cut it out and notch the right end with scissors. Leave the long tail on the left side of the saying and insert it into the spout of the plastic drink bottle.
Roll out a 12″ to 14″ length of aluminum foil and cut from the dispenser. Place the kiss container in the center of the foil square/rectangle. Carefully wrap the foil around the container using your hands. Shape the foil at the top of the container into a point, leaving the saying exposed.
