#1 A Unique Prom Dress Idea.

In 2010, Elizabeth Rasmuson was a junior in high school preparing to attend prom with her boyfriend, Jordan. But instead of buying a dress, Elizabeth decided to sew her own gown out of an unlikely material: 5 brand gum wrappers.

#2 Where She Drew Her Inspiration.

Elizabeth told The Associated Press, “I heard about somebody making a dress out of duct tape or something one time so I just was like what’s something cool and I’ve always liked the colors of the ‘Five’ gum.”

#3 The Dress Making Process:

Elizabeth used a combination of quilting techniques, iron-on interfacing, and a layer of vinyl finish to prevent wrapper breakage.

#4 She Lost Count.

Elizabeth admits that she lost count of the total wrappers used after 200. Family and friends helped her to collect all the wrappers required.
