I thought of decopauge, but on what, and would that work ok?  There are really neat colors of purple and deep red in the bittersweet kisses for Valentine's Day, and the wrappers are piling up on my desk!

i've seen these rolled into little balls and made into beads... very nice dark jewel tones, we were just commenting on them the other night as we chowed down. Kiss

my (little) brother has this habit of peeling the wax part from gum wrappers and using the tin part to "tag" people's cars, desks, walls, etc... if you smooth it to a surface with your fingernail, it's almost impossible to get off (trust me, there's been one stuck to the bumper of my car for over a year now).

betcha could do the same thing with hershey's wrappers.  to snazz up ANYTHING.  like a cheap version of metallic paint.  i'm seeing it on glass things like candle holders, mirrors, windows, etc, but i think it would work great on anything.

actually, unfortunitly, the silver part from gum wrappers only stick by themselves because it's still still sticky from the glue that was holding it to the paper.  so, hersey's wrappers won't do that.

BUT.....  I have successfully used them to cover notebooks.  you just have to use double stick tape or the like.  (elmers tended to peel off.  I would have tried other types of glue, but I had double stick tape handy and was impatient to boot.)

VooDoo toaster: I really like the checkerboard wrappers for the mint hersheys that were out this past Christmas. I made beads out of them. Just used like 6 wrappers made the firt into a tight litll ball & wrapped & layyerd them.Used a heavey duty wooden skewer to poke a hole in them then dipped them in mod podege to seal.

Aeroplane & Kategirl : Do oyu mean lke the foil aroud stick of gum? Like Big Red Or Wrigleys?  I'm gonna have to try this!

Aeroplane:   We used to do that all the time in school!   The teachers would get SO mad at us, because there were a few desks that were completely silver after a few years of everyone working together one one desk!   I thought it actually looked pretty cool!

Thanks for reminding me of it!  I don't know if I'll do anything crafty with it, but it's a great memory!

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

OOooh! OOooh! OOooh! Send them to me! LOL

I am saving chocolate wrappers and I am crudely sculpting a figure out of them to be my Chocolate Goddess for a chocolate shrine I am making! I'm calling her "Our Lady of the Chocolates."  Grin

You could always use it on your walls Smiley Tedious yes but you could use that instead of gold leaf! I saw something similar on Trading Spaces where they gold leaf'd a dining room ceiling. It was awesome!

Also, if you can fold a dollar bill into a box I'm sure you can do something similar with the wrappers!
