Introduction: How to Make a Starburst Wrappers Chain

I'm not sure what this could be used for, but it seems pretty impressive once it gets long. Please let me know if you get any ideas of what to make.
If you get it really long post a picture of it.

Step 1: The Need(s)

Well the only thing you really need is Starburst� wrappers.

Step 2: The Fold

Ok so the first step is to flatten or unroll or unfold all the creases on the wrapper.
Step 2. Fold the wrapper Hot Dog style 3 times.
Step 3. Fold it Hamburger style. The unfold.
Step 4. Fold both ends into the middle.
Step 5. Flip both ends up to touch each other.
Do this with a few wrappers.
This is probably really confusing so I will try to make a video.

Step 3: The Link

Ok so next we need to link the wrappers together. This will probably be even more confusing, so wait for the video.
Take 1 wrapper and hold it in your left hand with the open end facing your right, now take another wrapper with the open end facing down and the forked end facing the other wrapper, then insert.
You have now begun the chain.

Step 4: The End

Ok so now you just keep linking them until your hearts content. It's also fun to make a pattern in it like a rainbow, sections of the same color or something like that. And post pictures of your finished product.

Well it kinda depends on how old your wrappers are, I have quite a few old ones so it doesn't hold very much, but in general, I guess I'd have to say just a couple pounds.

Hmmm what kinda things can you make with that chain? I've seen purses made out of larger candy bar and soda wrappers. If you find out how please post.
