Hi guys!!!!! this is sort of my latest craft. i did it in class yesterday and finished it today. there where 2 girls around me eating starbursts and i asked them for the wrappers. i was more than half way done, so i bought another packet today. In total i used about 3 1/2 packets. here it is with a tute, hope you like it!




Tute Time!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/kvsl69/1.jpg
Okay, since I was tried of folding little wrappers, as soon as I was done, i threw the rest away so i'm just using a plain piece of lined paper for this.

1. paper
2. fold in half length wise
3. open up and fold sides towards the middle


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/kvsl69/2.jpg
4. now fold in half
5. fold in half again to have a skinny strip of paper, sort of looks like a blunt, haha Wink
6. now fold in half the other way, making sort of a V


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/kvsl69/3.jpg
7. open back up and fold sides to the middle to make a smaller V. this is basicaly all you need to make. Now, for linking them together.
8. I hope you all notice that on one side, it's smooth and clean
9. and in the other it's "dirty" and you can see all the folds. to be able to link them together smoothly, you need to match the clean sides together


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/kvsl69/4.jpg
10. so take the little V's with the "clean" side facing you
11. stick the right one into the left one
12. and pull through


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/kvsl69/5.jpg
13. so as you can see, when you pull it through, the smooth side is facing the bottom.
14. when you put in the other V, it will be coming from the left, into the right, with the smooth side facing down. I hope you guys are getting this! Undecided

I know how to add a clasp but i didn't because when i started it in class, i didn't have a clasp at hand. but what you would to is slip the circle into the V so that it dangles from the point on the bottom  V <---- and that would be on the first V when you begin making the braclet. then once you have it ready. slip 2 circles in the 2 tips, like this

so in the second diagram, you have two circles hanging. the clasp should come with it's own circle

you open that up and slip the two circles in there. so it would look like the second diagram. whew! i hope you guys got all that. anyway, i didn't do it like that, haha. i used a staper.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v206/kvsl69/6.jpg
i don't even know how i did this, i used to staples. i shot them out of the staple, straightened them out and did something. if you guys want to use the stapler try figuring it out from the diagram! if you reeeeeaallly wanna know, just ask! comments would be wonderful, thanks for lookin'!

<3,
karen

p.s. if you guys actually try it, please share!!!!
p.p.s. please click on the links under the pictures so you can see them in a bigger size and more detailed. as some fo you may know, Photobucket and Craftster resize them, sorry for the inconvenience!

Wow, that's sooooo awesome.  You could eat, like, 10,000 packs and have color specific ones, lol.  I'm definitely picking up Starburst tomorrow!  -Karin

Heh, I started my chain years ago (takes a while to eat so many candies).



Decided to sell it on Ebay b/c I'm bored with it. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=57738&item=8180695095&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

I had been looking for one by googling and junk, but then I stumbled across this one on Craftster and was like "Eureka!" So yeah, I just wanted to say thanks for the tut and happy crafting!  Grin

Yeah - that looks like a really good idea for amusement in classes. However, it's terrible, but all they sell in the vending machines in my school are bloody fruit bars and dried apricots.

Sucks.

But that is muchos cool, if a bit fiddly for my heavy hands  Cool

That is super cute! How durable are they? Such an awesome way to recycle! I probably won't ever get to make one since they contain gelatin, unless someday they decide to keep out the boiled down cowbones. Everyone please keep posting alternate materials!

ask someone you know to eat it for you, or you can just cut bits of paper up and do it.
that's what i do. i don't like starburst.

i saw your post and i just HAD to make my own bracelet. so after about three packs of starburts i finished mine. i also decided to use a stapler. i couldnt get a good pic of the stapler but i did it by simply stapleing the ends 2gether. works for me!!!

They are so much fun to make. I started making them last year, but used tootsie roll wrappers instead.

I didnt have any Starburts, so I started making this out of tootsie roll wrappers.  It works the same way.  I didn't get to finish, I ran out of candy.  If I finish it I'll post a picture
