Most people eat Starburst candies and throw away the wrappers, but Emily Seilhamer isn’t most people.
Talking to Bored Panda, she said that she met her husband whenhe offered hera pack of Starburst, so the candy has a bit of sentimental value for her.
She began saving the wrappers, andcame up with an insanely creative idea…
“Ive been saving Starburst wrappers diligently (with the help of friends and family) for fouryears to create this dress,” she said.
After enough were saved, she first organized them into colors and then ironed them.

“By painting underwear elastic to match the colors of the wrappers, I was able to seal the edges and insert a zipper,” she said.
