Kids have been folding candy wrappers like this for years, but this DIY project goes a step further with these candy wrappers and it’s genius! Talk about a great Christmas gifts. I always love giving something that’s unique like this is!
I love fun and funky stuff like this, especially when it serves a purpose like this dones! Of course anything that is colorful is something I’m gonna love.
Right after Halloween is the perfect time to collect a bunch of candy wrappers…I had my 3 grandchildren save candy wrappers for me after Halloween and I’ve been hoarding candy wrapper bags for a few months now and have quite the slew of wrappers so far.
People actually make large purses with candy and gum wrappers and they are beautiful! I saw one on Pinterest that was for sale for $195!
So don’t throw out all those candy wrappers, especially now that the cost of candy is rising. Get the most out of your raging sweet tooth by turning those wrappers into a handbag! The one in the attached tutorial is small, which is a good place to get started so you can see results faster, but you can make some amazing large bags and they are quite the conversation piece!
