Ever been to Minot, N.D.?
This seems an appropriate response.
A teen makes her prom dress from about 200 Mike & Ike candy boxes.
Said Kelly Thiel: “It was definitely a one of a kind dress at the prom. It all started with the cutting of the candy boxes. Next I peeled them leaving only a thin layer. This made the dress not so stiff and more flexible. I ironed the box fronts to satin. The dress pattern I used also included a layer of green tulle.”
Of note: Mike & Ike's are from Just Born - the Peeps people! And they're Kosher. Who knew? (Check out the Web site for the concert tix promo or to vote for a new flavor mix.)
