    Once again– great links and you gave me what I was looking for! I saw some Candy Wrapper purses in the M&M’s store in Vegas a few weeks ago. Made a mental note to look for a tut and haven’t had the time. You must be able to read minds! By the way, they were a few hundred dollars!! Thanks!

    Oh my goodness!! The Candy Wrapper purse is a blast from the past! Years and years ago when I was in junior high, my friends and I used to make chains from gum wrappers. Our preferred wrappers were Doublemint, Juicyfruit and an occasional Fruitstripe. Mine was yards and yards long. I haven’t seen it in years! Hmm -I wonder if it is still at my Mom’s house???

    When I was a pre-teen, we used to make the gum wrapper chains to be as tall as the boy we had a crush on, and then give it to him. That part often presented a problem since the boys were, of course, oblivious to our designs on them.
    Idea: If you prefer a silver handbag – turn appropriate food bags inside out before folding the units.
