Ornery was a little bit excited when I told him I needed some candy wrappers for a swap... It won't be long before all that Halloween candy starts showing up in the stores, and being the slightly ecological person that I am, I thought, "Why not recycle a wrapper or two?"

So, grab a candy bar, box, bag, etc. and use the wrapping as part of your design on an ATC. It can be in the background, or part of the design. Don't just slap a Skittles bag on a bit of cereal box and call it good. Get creative and make something you would like to keep for yourself. You can use several different wrappers or just the little white strip of paper on a Hershey's kiss. Dove chocolate pieces used to have messages inside for interesting text options, and the gold foil on a Rolo candy can be punched into little leaf shapes to create a fall design.

The theme is open, and the only requirement is that somewhere in the design you use at least one candy wrapper. Put a sturdy backing on it, label the back with name, username, date, etc, package securely, send on time, rate promptly.
