    Woman Creates A 10,000 Starburst Wrapper Dress

    Woman Creates A 10 000 Starburst Wrapper Dress
    Gear  /  Other

    This is the Starburst wrapper dress painstakingly crafted by Emily Seilhamer. It took four years to collect the over 10,000 wrappers needed, which were all sewn together with elastic thread.
    "I've been saving Starburst wrappers diligently (with the help of friends and family) for 4 years to create this dress. After enough were saved I organized them into colors, ironed them, folded them into links, and made candy wrapper chains.
    With the use of elastic thread, I was able to sew the links together into a "fabric" to create the dress. My husband and I met when he offered me a pack of Starburst a few years before the project started. As his favorite candy he began to save grocery bags full of wrappers for me... The dress had a nice spot next to the gift table at our wedding almost 2 years ago!"
