"You want some of my Crispy Crunch? Well, you can have the wrapper and sew it into a bag..." That's exactly what Spanish designer Marisa Rey did when she created her stylish line of handbags. Each handbag is made from carefully selected, woven, and sewn candy wrappers. And they're hot. At least ABC, Teen Magazine, MTV Fashion and Elle think so. Score.
