Well, you all know I'm wild for Duck Brand® Tape Crafts, and so is my daughter. This holder for candy kisses is very easy to make using Duck Tape® in colors and patterns, or even the shiny metallics and some scrap plastic.
What is scrap plastic? It's the stuff from blister packs, or the sides of milk jugs. I cut down a lot to useable flat peices that are stored in a drawer for when they would be handy, then recycle the scraps in the usual way. If you don't have a spare blister pack or an empty plastic milk jug- plastic needle point canvas would work as well.
Duck Tape® has designs for a lot of holidays, for Valentine's Day there are Cheetah Kisses which is the pattern I used in my project and Wild Hearts which my daughter used very well in a project of her own (photo at the end of the tutorial of her project!). The patterns inspire Valentine’s Day craft ideas.
First you'll need to cut 3 squares from the plastic. At least 1.5 inch squares. Mine were a bit bigger and my Kiss holds a lot of candy kisses. Just work with the plastic you have available and how big or small you want the finished project to be.
Cover those squares with tape on both sides.
Now cut 2 lengths of tape long enough to cover one side of a square. Cut those two pieces in half lengthwise (like a hotdog!) and tape up 2 edges on 2 squares.
Trim tape edges neatly if you have any overhang. Cut 2 more strips and cut them in half lengthwise. Now it's time to put in the back/bottom piece.
The first piece tapes in very easily. You'll tape the untaped edges of one square to the edges of the backing square.
To finish, you'll tape the last piece into place on the backing square. The plastic will give enough for you to be able to do it.
To open, just squeeze the corners where the two open pieces meet the back piece. In larger sizes, there maybe a noticeable gap, but it does hold the candy kisses nicely.

This is what my daughter made using Duck Tape® for Valentine's Day. She used a water bottle as a mandrel to create the quiver.
