Want to know how to make a bag out of candy wrappers?
Open candy wrappers and let they lay flat. Cut candy wrappers in half lengthwise. Fold them in half along length.
Open and fold the lower half of the wrapping paper to the middle. Fold the upper half toward the middle. Fold wrappers in in half along length again. At this point, there should be several layers of wrapper. Fold half. Fold halfway to the middle.
You can join them when you have 2 wrappers folded in this fashion.
Insert the wrapper into the slot of another wrapper. Repeat this process several times to get a long Gum Wrapper chain.
When you have a long Gum Wrapper chain, or a few small ones, you can join them together to form a purse or handbag.
Cut into the desired size and use a clear fishing line or thread to sew them together, pulling them tightly together. Or sew them together with one long string of Gum Wrappers to form a round bag, and join the bottom and add a strap.
You can continue to add the strings to the wrappers until you have the desired size. Join the bottom and sides, add a strap and off you go!
