Default I love this Quick Idea Gift!

Wisk Gift
Take a large wisk and fill it with Hershey Kisses.
Wrap all in cello and tie with fancy ribbon.
Make a cute little holiday gift tag that says:
"We WISK you a Merry Christmas".

I did a craft show in Nov. and my mom came up with this cute idea of using the whisk and putting packs of Hershey kiss-a-bles inside. We put the same saying on them too. They sold like hot cakes! We only priced them at $2.50, got the whisks at the dollar store. I think we had about 15 of them and sold out completely.

I wish I had thought of that idea or heard about it before I went out and bought the tins. Although I think the tins of candy that I put together came out well. Here is the link if you would lie to see one of the tins with the cello , ribbon and tag. http://itsallaboutthejourney.typepad....html#comments Hope that link works.

I read this twice (yes, twice), and kept thinking, why would you put candy in a bottle of Wisk? I finally realized it was a different wisk... (I guess I'm tired).


What a cute idea!

Great Idea! Where did you get the heavy clear plastic or is that regular Plastic Wrap? I was looking for something little to do for my sister-in-laws and this might just fit the bill!

Sorry for bumping this again but I noticed that the whisk's seem to be in a cello bag. Are those freezer bags like you freeze you strawberries in? I don't think that regular plastic wrap would look as good. If there is another source for these bags, please let me know. Thanks a bunch

They are actually in cellophane gift bags...Stampin' Up! sells them in five sizes. I am sure there are other sources, but that's where I got mine.

I went around to two or three dollar stores and found some whisks at Dollar General. As these were only a one dollar a piece some of the slots were bigger than others and the candy (Hershey Kisses ) kept falling out. This was quite frustrating! I solved the problem by layering the kisses on scotch tape. Two or three sets and then you could fill in with the loose ones. I am sure if you pay more for your whisk you probably won't have this problem.

THey have a set of 3 whisks for $2.99 at our Target. Small, Med., Large. The small one is really cute, the medium perfect, and the kisses pop out of the large one but if you're careful, and quickly wrap it in the cello bag, it all stays together. Thanks for this cute idea.
