So for my final exam in Art our teacher wanted us to make a something that was art..AND edible. I knew most people would go for the cakes and cookies (and I was right) but I didnt want to do that. Really I just wasnt up for baking lol! I had recently been given a nice little "just because" gift of all pink starbursts and it inspired me to make art! So I went to Target and bought 6 bags of starbursts, found a pattern and re-drew it on graph paper and got to work. In no time at all this is what I got =) Everyone loved it by the way and I passed my final lol!

And I had soooo much left over that this is what I made...


The tetris was a hit because I didnt want anyone taking apart mario so if they wanted candy, they got a tetris block. They loved it and they loved the fact that the blocks fit together and they could actually play the game lol!

Hope you liked it!!

Genius!  Well done on such a cool and creative idea.  And well done for passing.

That's really awesome!

 There are actually multiple blue flavors in the alternate flavors (sour blue raspberry and blueberries 'n creme, and one in the California mix). If you go to www.starburst.com, you can pick the name of the mix, and go down to the bottom box to see what flavors are in it.  Smiley That being said, my family prefers the original flavors.

Congratulations for passing the exam, you really deserved it. This has already burnt itself into my long-term memory after a second for the Mario idea! But then there's tetris! Wow, I love it! I'll have to find sweets to try it! (We don't have straburst, but there must be something that works just as well). Great gift idea!

This is great!  I especially love the tetris, because it's a game.  Excellent!

Back...after a long hiatus.

Hoping to get caught up again.

Thanks guys!!

And the blues were blue raspberry from the baja california pack. 

And the tetris was fun! I actually thew all the pieces into a bag and i played with my friend. I would randomly select a piece and slide it to him and he had to build tetris. He hated when Id throw pieces that didnt fit for him. He's be like "damnit throw me a long one!" and Id tell him that you dont ask tetris to give u a piece, they just come. It was really funny! Everyone should make tetris and play!
