And if you get tired of picking the foil off, a little Elmer's glue will stick the whole gum wrapper straight onto a bedroom door.  I did my whole door of my old bedroom.  It took only 8 hours, and a few more than 300 wrappers.  IceBreakers are the best for this.

You could also crinkle them a little, and use them for fancy packing material for your xmas shipments. Smiley

My entire family are candy-holics and like hundreds of candy wrappers pass through my house each month. But I was thinking...Is there anything I could do with them..? Besides the obvious such as wallets or purses and such. Any unique jewelry ideas? Or even better..something else? Anyway any and all ideas and pictures are welcome. Thanks a ton! Smiley

you could always make a collage type thingie... or cover a blank jounal with them (i've done that with some of my school notebooks but unfortunatly it makes me VERY hungry in the middle of class... lol) as far as jewelry goes, you could make those "paper beads" with them... i hope you know what im talking about...

Ooooo! When i was little, my Aunt would send me a BIG BIG box full of goodies from Germany. It was full of cute little German candies, Hello Kitty (before it was found all over here), Barbies in german boxes, etc. I've also been to Germany twice and fell in love again with the candy (so says my butt) -- especially the chocolate Kinder Eggs with the toys inside.

So it was especially WONDERFUL when we discovered a japanese supermarket in Chicagoland called Mitsuwa. They not only had a japanese version of the Kinder Eggs (with LOTR toys inside!), but cute little toys in a box with candy, as well as little boxes full of candy with cute little scenes on the back. I took one apart and made a microscope slide necklace:

KINDER EGGS!!!!!!!  My contininental cousins have lived everywhere!!!  One time when they lived in the Netherlands, they brought us some Kinder Eggs!!!  I don't remember much other then the chocolate was REALLY yummy and there was a toy in the middle that you had to put together!  (I got them when I was REALLY litt...)  I didn't even know they were called Kinder Eggs, but that sounds like what they are...

Okay, that wasn't really on topic...

I have a whole bunch of tootsie roll wrappers, and I was wondering if anyone thought they would work for that chain bracelet thingy... like this

I dont know if you want to fold your wrappers but I made a braclet out of starburst wrappers so Im guessing you could do that with the germany wrappers too!
