OK so I have heard about people making dresses out of candy wrappers and such, so I decided to give it a shot. My dress was originally going to be made out of just candy wrappers, but it has some chip bags and Raman noddle bags, so its a wrapper dress. My earings, necklace and the flower on my headband are also made of wrappers. I made it for my dance.

Ha! This is SO cool! I could never even figure out how to do something like this. I love how your accessories are made to match as well! Great job! Smiley

Your dress is fantastic!! It makes your friends' dresses look blah and plain in comparison. Great job.

chips, ramen noodles, candy...just add some red bull in there and you have a college kids entire diet! lol
it looks adorable on you! I love that your hair reminds me of reese's pieces and matches the colorfulness of your dress.

I'm thinking of making a skittles wraper skirt, but I hardly eat candy, let alone enough to have enough wrappers to make a skirt...You did a great job on yours though Smiley I like that you made earrings to match! Very cute.
