Tootsie Rolls: All Wrapped Up!

If you’re like us, you are absolutely inundated with Tootsie Rolls during Halloween, and with good reason. These small chocolatey snacks are the perfect size when you need to satisfy that midday chocolate craving. They also are great to keep in candy dishes, desk drawers, or in your son or daughter’s lunch bag. As a matter of fact, there really isn’t a place where Tootsie Rolls won’t fit!

Since Tootsie Rolls are individually wrapped (they delightfully spin when you unwrap them!), the one thing you’re left with after indulging in a roll or two is the distinctive brown, red, and white wrapper. While you could simply throw out the wrappers, where’s the fun in that? We found some great tutorials online, showing fun and unique ways to use the Tootsie wrapper after you’ve eaten the candy.

Over at Plum Pudding, they have a wonderful post detailing how to turn a bag of Tootsie Roll wrappers into a stylish belt. All you need are common household craft items like scissors, packing tape, and double stick tape and 2 d-rings, which can be found at your favorite fabric store.

Poking around eHow, we found this great lesson about creating those crazy purses and bags out of candy wrappers. You’ve seen these bags in stores everywhere, but you might not have known that you can make them yourself. All you need is a free day and a LOT of Tootsie Roll wrappers. Once you master the initial fold technique, you’ll be on your way to having a “sweet” purse!
