1  Re:Candy Wrappers in What the heck can I do with THIS? by atomiqt on: June 27, 2005 01:29:49 PM
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

These nails look WAY to long, but I bet the designs would look cool on short nails.

Ahh... those nails are alive or something... as in.. unhumanly LOOOOOONG.   Shocked  LOL  My sister used to have a nail polish design book w/ designs easy enough for someone like me to do.  BUT, apparently, she lost it!  *cries*  I'm so sad...  One of my favorites that I remember was red white and blue triangles all on one nail.
I love bright colors so i paint my nails many different colors. Like each nail will be a different bright color. ((like lime green neon pink orange...etc...) Then i take electrical tape and cut it into strips ((very small ones)) Duct tape is too tough but electrical tape has a weaker adhesive so it doesn't pull off the colors. Then i put the strips on my nails diagonaly and paint black polish over top i let it dry and then pull off the strips and i have black and multi-color striped nails.
((this pic is from the 1st time i painted my nails this way... so i left the middle fingers black that time))

I do pretty much the same thing except that somehow I ended up with manicure tape and I use that to make the stripes.  *great minds think alike!*

3  Candy Wrapper Bookmarks (SUPER EASY!!!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by atomiqt on: December 20, 2004 10:27:19 AM
The other day I was reading a book in one of my classes after I had finished all of my homework.  My teacher had given some skittles for helping her pass out a GAZILLION math papers.  When it was time to go, I put the wrapper in my book as a bookmark.  It stayed for a while, at least, until I got home. Cheesy  I decided to make it a more permanate bookmark and sewed some felt on the back.  It looked pretty neat so I sewed up some more wrappers, except I used foam.  I gave away the original one to my cousin already, but I like the foam ones better anyways.  Here are some pics.

If anyone wants a tutorial, please tell me.  They are pretty self explanitory.


-This is my first time to post pictures, I am really sorry if they don't work and I will try to fix them ASAP!-
