Starburst Wrapper Chain by Kalartscene Starburst Wrapper Chain by Kalartscene
This will be one of the few items I post that is not a painting.

It's just over 3000 wrappers, just under 60 feet. I've been working on this for quite awhile now (about 5+ years) and have had a tremendous amount of help. My goal right now is to reach 100 feet. I currently have about 300 wrappers that still need folding (my fingers start to hurt after awhile)- if I can find a better way to show the length, I'll be sure to post it.

Just wanted to share :)

Oh. Wow.

I once tried to save a bunch of candy wrappers for just this purpose, but I ended up throwing them out before I put them together … It's so cool that you stuck with this.

It got easier once people started accepting that I wanted their wrappers without thinking it strange, haha. When I started, I got to about 2 feet and then stopped for about two years. I picked it back up again once I found the old chain and decided to see just how long I could get it. Even if it breaks no records, I still enjoy working on it :)

It's been my goal to get the World's longest Starburst chain and submit it to Guinness. I read somewhere that the longest was 19k wrappers (no where near the 52k gum wrapper record..) but I haven't seen anything on it. Even if I don't make it in, it's still fun to show to people and see their reaction :)
