I've seen a few threads about bags made from Starburst wrappers. I'm interested in making one (I've got quite a few wrappers lying around from all sorts of candy), but they don't seem like they would deal with wear that well (bags tend to take a bit of a beating in school). If you've made such a bag before, how sturdy/durable is it and how did you make it that way?
I so Rock like that!

All the purses that I have seen using starburst wrappers or any kind of candy wrappers are usually made with vinyl or ducttape to make them sturdier. and thank you for reminding me about starburst...my friends uncle goes through atleast a bag a day...hmmm now i have more ideas lol

I just finished my first one and I'm so happy with it! Took me about 3 years to save up all those wrappers, mind you, mine's a big old shoulder bag and it's not just Starbursts. I covered the wrappers in clear packing tape and reinforced the sides with cardboard inserts, then covered it with duct tape on the reverse. I later added pockets on the inside like I made the outside. It is very sturdy, I have used it for slumber parties and to carry my schoolbooks around, but haven't attempted to stuff it in my locker yet
