She Made A Dress From 10,000 Candy Wrappers And The Reason Why Will Warm Your Heart

We all have special moments that define our relationships.

For Emily Seilhamer, that moment came when her now-husband first offered her some Starburst candy. It was the first moment they connected, and it’s his favorite candy. In honor of their shared love together, Seilhamer wanted to do something special. But she was in it for the long haul. This project was four years in the making before she ever picked up a needle and thread.

For years, Seilhamer collected Starburst wrappers. In total, she gathered more than 10,000 of them.

Then she separated them out by color and carefully ironed them flat.

That’s when she started folding, creating long chains of single and multi-color wrappers.

Seilhamer created strips of the same or similar colors in order to create her fabulous design.
