Folded link chain with sweet wrappers
It’s commonly known as Candy wrapper chain or Gum wrapper chain, but of course many other types of materials can be used to make it. As a name of a technique rather than a material, I call it Folded Link Chain: each link needs to be folded and together they form a chain. Flink Chain for short.
I’m interested in looking at how we can reuse wrappers of all kinds – sweets, chocolate, crisps, wrapping paper, that coming in a range of foils, plastic foils, paper foils and thin cheap plastic. Mostly this plastic packaging can’t be recycled. However they offers a huge range of colours and sparkle and I’m looking for ideas to make long lasting items out of them.
