Hot for Dots Necklace, www.thetotetrove.etsy.com
I took a detour from the world of fabulous felt (you may remember that I was slated to whip up some fluffy felt cupcakes) to explore the kingdom of cardboard. I have this plastic box overflowing with candy wrappers and empty snack boxes on a shelf in my craft room (casualties of an abandoned decoupage project) and thought, hey, why not use some of this stuff in my necklaces? I started with gelatin and gumdrops, two of my favorite desserts in both color and flavor, and am really excited about how they turned out. I think I may even wear the Hot for Dots one tomorrow.
