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 30-35 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. 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. Click on any of the photos for a larger view.
Step 1Take your first wrapper… and flip it over. I know, it’s tricky.
Step 2Fold (hot dog) one side in to the halfway point.
Step 3 Fold (hot dog) the other side to the halfway point.

Step 5Fold (hot dog) in half again. Repeat steps 1-8 with the next wrapper. Step 9Insert points 1 and 2 into slots A and B. fold (hot dog) the whole thing in half so the raw edges you just folded are on the inside crease.
Step 14. Step 13Once you have reached the desired length… this is where it gets tricky. but then unfold the last two folds. Insert these raw edges into the same spots in the “V”.. Step 11Continue steps 1-10… Step 12… until you begin to build up a chain. fold one more wrapper the same way as the others.Step 10And pull it through. .

And you’re done! Congratulations! .Step 15Pull the two ends of the bracelet close together. Step 17 Pull ends through until you reach the original folded point. Step 18 Tuck the raw edges into the previous wrapper. i find it helpful to use a paperclip or similar item to push the wrappers through. and hold the edges of your long “V” over both edges of the end of the other side.

as long as it is very strong.they are all sewn and NOT woven or folded together. it was catfish nylon and would not break but I can’t find any thin enough. The thread that I was using in the photos was a denim jean thread. The size of the piece of credit card was cut 2 3/8 X 1/2. As you run out of thread. I made myself a needle out of a credit card and melted a hole in one end for the thread. That seemed to work the best but you will need a needle to attach the zipper.bring needle up thru any chain and back down the other side and tie a strong knot. It’s very strong and won’t break but it was so thin that it actually was like a knife and cut my wrapper. I found a doily crochet thread that worked. I’ve tried several different kind of thread…….. tie on with a square knot and continue sewing .SEWING ROWS TOGETHER Each row has like a positive and negative. You will be fitting the positive into the negative so that rows fit together (see photos) You can use a large eyes needle with a blunt tip. I checked into the fishing line that everyone talks about. It’s all just to thick. To begin sewing rows together…..I don’t know that there is a wrong or right thread……. The beginning is the only time that you will tie your thread onto the purse. you poke thru the wrappers instead of going thru them. (next 3 photos) You will weave your loose thread ends into the purse later. DMC floss worked fine.. if you use the ones like I first tried in the picture. I’ve read lots of info of speculation on how these purses are put together…………….
. Once you go all the way around..positive to negative . up thru the next chain and down thru the next one. You will be sewing down thru a chain. Continue sewing up and down chains until you go all the way around. You will then take your thread over a “V” and do the inside or other side. over slightly to the right and down thru the next chain.. You will be sewing both sides.. Follow the pictures………You will continue to do this until you get all the way around. you need to run your thread over the "V" to sew the other side of the purse. Make sure you pull the thread tight so you do not have any gaps or see the thread.. It will get very stiff as you will be pulling the thread tight to pull all the chains together..Put two chains together as I described with the positive and negative. You will be sewing both sides of the purse. add the next row.
There is not enough room on the inside to sew like you did on the other rows. Once you get it tucked in there it's not going anywhere because it's so tightly wedged in there. You'll totally understand what I'm talking about once you begin sewing. :-) Continue sewing along the bottom. .SEWING THE BOTTOM Squeeze the bottom together and start sewing. You will only be able to sew the outside of this row. The only place that you can see my thread is in the very corners. It doesn't matter how many times you go around a square because you will never see the thread. but once you squeeze it together just start running your needle thru the rows to hold them together. You will have to sew around the corners a couple of times to pull them tight. I can't really explain how to sew the bottom. Tuck in each corner with a screwdriver when you have the bottom sewn. The bottom is harder to have a consistant sewing pattern because your sewing the positive to positive.
You will cut the excess off that is inside the purse. This picture is a little blurry but what I'm trying to show is the needle coming back up the white chain. The needle will come back up through the white chain. You will catch the edge of the zipper at every "v" around the chain. . Do both ends of the zipper like the picture.ADDING THE ZIPPER Doesn't matter what type of zipper you buy just so it is long enough to go across the purse. the needle is running down thru the chain of red wrapper with the yellow strip through it. If you look really close at this picture. Catch the very edge of the zipper and then run your needle down thru a chain and up the next one. It doesn't really matter how long the zipper is because once you tuck the ends inside the purse you can cut the zipper off.
