How To Make Hershey Kiss Labels in Publisher

I recently had a reader contact me about making a tutorial on making labels for Hershey Kisses.  This is what I came up with.  If you have a hard time following along, you will probably need to check out my other Publisher tutorials here.

First, you will need to open a new Publisher document.
 Next you need to Insert, Picture, Autoshapes, Basic Shapes, and Oval.

Take the mouse and form your oval to look like a circle.  Mine looks like a oval in this tutorial since I had to stretch it out to make it easier to see.

Then double click on the shape and a dialog box like this should open up. Click on Size.

You will then need to change the Height and Width to 0.75 (the size of the bottom of a hersey's kiss).

Next click on the Color tab...

     and change the Line Color to No Line, and the Fill Color of the Circle to Orange (for this tutorial's 
                                                                               purposes).

Once you have your circle filled with orange, you can decorate it as you please.  You will need to zoom in to do this.  I chose 200% .  You can find this right next to the magnifying glass icons.  I then decorated mine with a star and inserted a text box. 
 I chose to make it say "Happy Birthday".  Once I was finished with designing it...
 I zoomed back out to 39%.
 I selected my design (you can do this by either holding down control while clicking on all your elements or just lasso the entire circle).  
 Then copy and paste to fill up your entire sheet.
Once your design is totally done, save it as a JPEG at highest quality or leave it as a Publisher document if you are printing at home. Print out your design onto sticker paper.  Once you have printed out your sheet you will need a .75 Circle Punch.  Punch out each circle and then attach to your kisses.  A good tip is told your punch upside down over the design so you can see what the circle actually is going to cut.  I purposely chose to not have an outline, just in case I didn't do it perfectly.  Also, it might not be a bad idea to make your circles somewhat larger, so you don't have to worry about missing the design.  I hope this helps everyone!
