My example: Starburst wrappers (but I've also been successful with Tootsie Roll wrappers)

- Keep in mind that the wrapper should be a rectangular shape.
- You’ll need about 30-40 wrappers depending on how large you want to make your bracelet, and what kind of candy wrapper it is.
- Keep in mind that you must make your bracelet large enough to easily slip on and off your wrist without breaking it, but not so large that it falls off.

If you follow the steps correctly with a tootsie roll wrapper instead of a starburst wrapper, you can end up with the same result!
(but the bracelet will turn out a little bigger than the starburst version)

Step 1:

Continue making links (steps 1-8) and adding them the chain (steps 9-10)

Step 12:

Once you reached your desired length: unfold the legs of the last “V” you inserted. Insert these legs into the A and B slots of the V at the end of the chain.

Step 13:

Pull the legs through and fold them into the “V”, as you’ve done for the others. This is the most difficult part to do and to explain, but think of it as doing the same thing you’ve been doing, but backwards.

And you're finished!

Where has this little secret been hiding for so long! Glad to see this wonderful project brought back to life. :-) Such fond memories!
i made a similar bracelet a few months ago for the end part i pushed a paper clip through the first and last links then bent it and sanded it down but i think your method is better
