Year of the Snake Hershey Treats

OMG - I have to share this treat I got from Karen L. this is the CUTEST and most creative treat ever!!!! If you have been following the Brenda Quintana on her blog (Qbee's Quest found here) showing various Hershey Kiss treat holders from the recent Easter basket, heart, holiday tree......... to name a will like this Year of Snake Hershey treat Karen was inspired to make following the same concept.  Snake is 6-3/4" long and fits in a Michael's treat bag (the skinny kind)
Here is a closer look at the googlie eyes and felt tongue:

Karen has kindly provided the template as follows:

Some additional notes:
  • Tape "kisses holders" together with painter's tape, so they can wind the snake strip around them. More-talented people might find that unnecessary.
  • I've labeled the slits with letters. In the diagram, the letter on top should fit down onto the letter on the bottom. For instance, at the intersection of D and B, you should be able to push slit D down onto slit B.
  • The snake can slither into treat bags that are meant for those dipped rod pretzels. I got a pack of 75 at Michael's

Don't you just LOVE this project so perfect for Chinese New Year???? And, thank you Brenda for providing such inspiration to us all. Thank you Karen for your cute treat!!!
