[learn_more caption="Read More"]So, have you been wondering how to make the amazing bracelets from Starburst wrappers? A simple folding method, plus some finishing tips, will help you make your very own Starburst bracelet. Using these simple instructions, you’ll soon memorize the folding pattern, and it’ll be a piece of cake! (or candy..) The average bracelet takes 30-36 Starburst wrappers, so save up! Asking friends to unwrap carefully and “donate” helps quite a bit. Also, to avoid candy binges and sugar highs, unwrapping all your Starbursts and saving them in a ziploc bag for later munching is helpful.

You can make this bracelet from any rectangular wrapper: dum dum wrappers, tootsie roll wrappers, most gum wrappers, now and laters… be creative, there are lots of options!

Keep in mind that when you have finished, you need the bracelet big enough to slide on and off your wrist without too much trouble. Because of the folding method, the bracelet will stretch slightly, so this shouldn’t be much of a problem.. but be careful. This is the only tutorial that contains the ending method that blends in with the rest of the bracelet; it’s very tricky but entirely feasible.

.. fold one more wrapper the same way as the others, but then unfold the last two folds. Insert these raw edges into the same spots in the “V”.

Step 15

Pull the two ends of the bracelet close together, and hold the edges of your long “V” over both edges of the end of the other side.

Step 16

Insert the raw edges into the first wrapper. You’re doing the same thing we’ve been doing, but backwards.

Step 17

Tuck the raw edges into the previous wrapper, so it looks just like the other wrappers in the chain.
tip! at this point, i find it helpful to use a paperclip or similar item to push the wrappers through.
