I have alot of candy wrappers from Germany. My mom visits my grandmother and when I was a kid I loved Germany's candy. So she brings back tons. But I try not to throw away the wrappers because I love them. So colorful. Well anyways They are sitting in a box and I have no clue what to do.

my first thought would be to decoupage them onto something... a shoebox or journal perhaps.

how about onto a photoalbum? you could fill it with photos of your visits to germany and your family  Smiley

ooh, also, they could be used to nice effect in the kitchen... maybe made into fridge magnets or to cover a cookie jar...

One of my friend and I collect PEZ dispensers, so we have lots of those wrappers around. For her birthday I decoupaged some onto light switch plates for her. They looked great. I'll try to get her to take a picture for me at some point. Candy switch plates would be great for a kitchen.

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:

i think it would be cool to go to a trift store or yard sales ans find plain coffe tables and decoupage the wrappers to it.

I've got a cold, and I've been collecting the wrappers of my cough drops...  Any ideas on what they can be used for?  I think I've become rather attached to them!

This morning I looked down at my unmade bed and decided that it was art in another medium and I should not destroy it
