Then I came across this blog's awesome instructions for how to make a Starburst wrapper chain bracelet, and started eating candy like mad:
This folding technique may have originated in prisons. My mother has a picture frame made this way, made with folded cigarette wrappers. I have some purses from Mexico made like this, made from snack packaging.
|Some websites call these "Basura Bags". That's the Spanish word for garbage, but I love it!|
I purchases a bulk bag of Starbursts from Target. When I realized there were uneven numbers of flavors, I purchased single candies from Partycity. I'm sure I'll be visiting them again, soon!
After a whole lot of unwrapping and folding, I'm done with the first bracelet now, and totally sick of Starbursts. I don't want to ever eat another Starburst, but yes, I did eat the 44 Starbursts that went into this picture, below:
My fingertips are so sore from all the folding involved in this type of project. Ow, indeed!
