Presenting my humble addition to the supermarket challenge:  A tricked out candy dish decorated with candy wrappers.

(It's hard to get pictures of shiny things!)

First I bought a bag of rolos, a bag of hersheys kisses and a container of puffs.

Then I ate the candy, let my darling baby eat the puffs and saved the container and wrappers and a lonely hershey kiss. I suppose I could have used the unwrapped candies to fill the container, but what fun would that be?  Cheesy

I used the backside of the wrappers like gold leaf to cover the cool container and cut out branches and flowers from the gold rolo wrappers to make the design. 

I re-wrapped the kiss in the gold rolo wrapper. 

I'm going to put my homemade goodies in it for a holiday gift. Thanks for looking and don't forget to vote.  Smiley

This makes me hungry! Good job on the design, I dig the gold and silver.

Super Cute!  Since I did the tortilla art for this challenge, I am sort of facinated with foils too.  Do you mind me asking...what did you use for glue on the wrappers?  I was having trouble getting some foils to glue down neatly (like you did).

It looks pretty and what a great way to recycle candy wrappers!

Thank you all!

For glue I used tacky glue for part of it after my ten year old white glue gave up the ghost.  To get it to lie smooth its mostly about getting a good even coat of glue and then laying down the flattened piece of foil down gently.
