61  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another starburst bag on: May 01, 2004 10:46:44 AM
i saw a lot of projects that inspired me on this site ^_^ ones that caught my eye were the starburst wrapper messenger bag the wallet and a girl had even made a corset
so i set out of making my own ^_^
to give you an i dea.. the whole thing took about 300+ wrappers
and only took me 6 days
also each one is about 20 calories so i was on a 4000 calorie diet >.<
lucky me, a drug store near by was closing and so they had a HUGE sale and i got a few bags there ( 2 bags of fruit and cream, 1 bag sour)
then a kid at my high school sells candy every now and then and he had the medium/small bagsof the tropical fruits starbursts so i bought 2 from him, i also had my friends lynsey and sarah donate wrappers ^_^ thank you guys
Then i got 2 bags of original ^_^ So i ate 200+ of them to make this... i was going to randomly put them together but stubborn me decided i wanted a sort of pattern...
i used:
-starburst wrappers (of course ^_^;)
-clear duct tape brand duct tape
-black duct tape
-nylon straps that held the pieces of my mom's new table together when they wree delivered
-2 strips of fun foam for the handle
-needle and thread (to sew the straps)
-some parts of a fruity pebbles box to reinforce and maintain shape (like that the bottom corners and weaker areas)

soo here it is ^_^
The Closing Flap:

The Top With Handle:

The Back (sour starburst stripes):


(one side) the sides and bottom are all done in oranges and cream:

62  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / V-day jewelry on: February 18, 2004 01:08:43 PM
I know it's a little late for Valentines day jewelry but better late than never
this is what i made and wore the week before V-day

the necklace/collar part is made from the leather handle of an old purse
the candies are real and they have been coated in 3 layers of clear nail polish
i hope they keep ^_^;;
and i used a hot glue gun to attach them to the collar and got adhesive velcro and attached it to the back to keep the necklace on... then later i sewed the velcro on because my hair kept get'n caught in the adhesive
for the clips i took regular clips and hot glue the nail polish coated candies onto them ^_^
they held up very well and are super cute ^_^
thank you for any and all comments
