Introduction: How to Make a Bracelet Out of Starburst Wrappers
On the last day of school my friends and I were eating Starbursts and I thought that the wrappers could be used for something. I told my friends to try not to rip the wrappers when they took them off the candy. After school I had a ton of wrappers. I was messing around and figured out that if I folded them right I could make them into a bracelet. My friends love them and they look cool.
This is my first instructable so please tell me what I could do if anything to make my next one better.
Step 1: Things You Need
You only really need two things to make a Starburst bracelet.
Lots of Starburst wrappers(only use ones that aren't ripped)
One safety pin
Step 2: Making a Link
Each wrapper is folded to make a single link then links are put together to form a chain. Before you start you should think of a pattern for your bracelet so it will look the way you want.
start with a wrapper and try to smooth it out if it has any creases
flip the wrapper so the color is facing down
fold the outer edges in to meet in the middle
then fold the wrapper in half
fold the wrapper in half again
then fold the wrapper in half so the edges meet
open the last fold there is now a crease in the middle fold the edges in to meet at that crease
you now have one link
Step 3: Putting It Together
After you have made another link you must put them together.
hold the first link so the open end is down then take another link and insert its two ends into the first link if done correctly then it should look like picture 2
just keep adding links until the chain is long enough to go around your wrist but with a gap between the two ends that is as big as your safety pin
Step 4: Finishing the Bracelet
The safety pin is needed to hold the two ends of the chain together
